Without Sex and the City, the Cosmopolitan would not be the wildly popular cocktail it is today. Created in the early 80s, the drink became well known because Carrie frequently ordered the rosy-hued concoction. At the Sex and the City marathon that Fab and I are hosting, we'll definitely be pouring Cosmopolitans.
We'll also have tons of pink champagne and sparkling water on hand. To see the cosmo recipe, we'll use,
1 1/2 oz. vodka
1/2 oz. cointreau or triple sec
3/4 oz. cranberry juice
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice
- Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well.
- Strain into a cocktail glass.
- Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.
