Cosmopolitan or cosmo is a cocktail consisting of vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and lime juice.
The show Sex and the City is a reason why the Cosmopolitan cocktail is famous. It is easily identifiable due to its pink tint and you drink it out of a distinctive martini glass.
Some people view Cosmos as a “girly” drink. Or one that you order under the false pretense of sophistication. However, a properly made Cosmo isn’t overly sweet or fruity, but rather a slightly tart cocktail.
Variations on the Cosmopolitan
Like most cocktails, Cosmos will vary by bar and bartender. Many take liberties with the original recipe thus creating variations:
**Some recipes call for citrus infused vodka to add a kick.
**A blue Cosmo includes white cranberry juice with blue curacao instead of orange liqueur.
**The Cosmocello is an Italian-themed interpretation that substitutes limoncello in place of lime juice.
**Rum replaces vodka in the Barbados Cosmo
**For a pick-me-up, a Cosmopolitan Morning includes a coffee-flavored.
