Review:

The Cosmopolitan was originally made with citrus vodka but this recipe works just as well with unflavoured vodka, and when a good quality cranberry juice is used, we prefer the simplicity of unflavoured vodka in this cocktail.

History:

The origins of the Cosmo seem to originate in the gay bars of 1970s San Francisco but this contemporary classic cocktail was perfected and popularised in 1990s New York City. Along the way, a number of bartenders played their part in its success but perhaps TV's Sex and the City was the most influential. Story behind the creation and development of the Cosmopolitan cocktail
