Cosmopolitan Recipe
The Cosmopolitan, or Cosmo to its friends, has a hotly debated history. No one knows for sure how and when the martini variation was invented; some credit the New England coast as its birthplace, while others believe that similar variations were made by numerous independent bartenders in the 1970s, but one thing is for sure…there has been a surge in popularity of the drink since it was a staple on the HBO series Sex and the City. Since then, the Cosmopolitan has maintained a girly reputation, and considering it’s lovely pink hue, it’s not hard to see why. Different variations have different colors, but the Cosmopolitan doesn’t stop being pink at heart. To celebrate the Cosmo in all of its glory, here’s how to make a Cosmopolitan.

Light Cosmopolitan
A cosmo is a classic cocktail to serve before or during dinner. With just one ounce of vodka, it’s light enough to help you last the day. Cranberry and lime are great complements to the meal and a splash of soda helps lighten it even more.

Pomegranate Cosmopolitan Recipe
We shake a cocktail when the ingredients are of different weights. Mixers like citrus juices are heavier than liquor, and need to be shaken in order to emulsify, aerate, and bruise the cocktail. A good rule of thumb: only shake a drink that uses juice, egg, or cream in its recipe. Experiment with this version of a Cosmopolitan for a delicious shaken cocktail.

An ode to developing a 'crush,' the citrus flavors of Ketel One Citroen and Cointreau easily assimilate and balance one another, while the added strawberry and lime provide are both fruitful and bittersweet.

This is a refreshing martini for a hot summer day or any time. For a more refined, elegant presentation, you can make a White Cosmopolitan by substituting white cranberry juice for the red cranberry juice. From 101 Martinis by Kim Haasarud.

Last year I organised a 'Sex & the City' evening with some girls and made a huge amount of this Cosmopolitan for them. And yes, we had a lot of fun...The recipe source (www.perfectdrinks.de) claims that you need to use a lemon wodka for a traditional cosmopolitan. However, I couldn't find any and it still tasted great. It also says that by replacing the cointreau with triple sec your drink will become more boring. The recipe is for one cocktail only.

Sidecar, Whiskey Sour, Margarita, Daiquiri. These drinks have something fundamental in common: they're all sours. Sours are fundamental cocktails. Take a base spirit, add citrus, and polish it off with a sweetener, usually (but not always) triple sec. Tweak the balance as you will, but sours made well are always delicious. Sidecar: brandy, lemon juice, triple sec. Whiskey sour: Bourbon, lemon, triple. Margarita: tequila, lime, triple. Daiquiri: rum, lime, simple syrup. Let's try a different base spirit: citrus vodka. To finish out the Sour Experience, add the requisite triple sec and citrus, in this case, lime. For variety, add another fruit flavor: cranberry, why not? The Cosmopolitan is a cultural touchstone because once upon a time, Dale DeGroff got one into the hands of Madonna at the Rainbow Room and it became the drink to be seen with. Then HBO and SJP, of course, made the drink ubiquitous and clichéd. Nevertheless, sours are fundamental cocktails, and the Cosmopolitan is, simply stated, the best Vodka Sour around.

Sex and the City is probably my favorite TV show ever, and this is one of my favorite drinks, originating from that show.
