The origins of the cosmopolitan are disputed – some theories credit Miami bartender Cheryl Cook with inventing the drink in the 1980s, whereas others claim it was created in the early 90s at Julie’s Supper Club in San Francisco.
But either way, the fact remains that it is now one of the best-known cocktails on the planet.
The cosmopolitan is an “evolving” cocktail, and no one official recipe exists for it.
The variations it has spawned include this MIDORI Cosmopolitan – try it for yourself and experience a cosmopolitan with the extra kick of citrus vodka, added in just the right amount.
