A true classic from the 1930s. A wonderful fresh and fruity, not too sweet cocktail. Every Sex And The City lover should have tried a ‘Cosmo’. With the elegant shape of the Martini glass and the soft pink color of the cocktail, you have upper class New York at home.

By the way, fans of Rambo would also like the Cosmopolitan. There is a nice dash of alcohol in it because of the Amsterdam Republic Premium Vodka of 40% and the Triple sec orange liqueur 40% (Cointreau for example).
“I’d like a cheeseburger, large fries, and a cosmopolitan.” – Carrie
