First arriving in the mid 80’s, the Cosmopolitan was “the” cocktail of the 90’s. While it is still popular today, some may avoid it less they be seen as simply “following the pack”. Since the Cosmo follows the classic-style formula of such great drinks as the Sidecar, Margarita, Daiquiri, and Aviation, there is nothing at all wrong with this drink, just be careful to make it with good quality ingredients.
1 1/2 oz Citrus Vodka 1 oz cranberry juice 1/2 oz Cointreau 1/4 oz fresh lime juice
Shake with ice. Strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wedge.
