Cosmopolitan - Vodka Cocktail

About The Cosmopolitan Cocktail

According to Gary Regan’s research, the original Cosmopolitan was created by a South Beach bartender named Cheryl Cook. Eager to invent a new cocktail for the Martini glass, Cheryl riffed on the classic Kamikaze using a newly introduced citrus-flavored vodka plus a splash of cranberry juice. The rest is rose-hued history.
