This is the definitive Cosmo recipe from the man most associated with the drinks development and popularity.


This recipe is from Dale's 2002 'The Craft of the Cocktail' where he also explains that while he did not invent the Cosmopolitan, in his own words, "What I did do was popularize a definitive recipe that became widely accepted as the standard."
