Review:

This 2:1:1:1 original Cosmopolitan is on the tart side of balanced with the citrus-flavoured vodka shining over the other ingredients. Indeed, Toby describes his Cosmo as being "kind of a brutal sour, it's very very tart."

History:

The original Cosmopolitan cocktail recipe as created in 1988 by Toby Cecchini at The Odeon in New York City. Toby's recipe used the then newly launched Absolut Citron and Cointreau triple sec.
