How to make a real cosmopolitan cocktail?

Cocktail "Cosmopolitan" is the favorite alcoholic drink of our time. Back in the seventies in our country about him almost no one heard, but in America knew only a narrow circle of young people, hanging out in underground clubs and other closed recreation places. But as soon as the youth television series "Sex and the City" appeared on the blue screens of the TV, the whole world recognized the cocktail.

A bit of history

Initially, Cosmopolitan was created in support of Absolut Citron brand vodka, but, unfortunately, the cocktail did not become popular. Only a few informal youth associations of the States became its fans.

The “mom” of the cosmopolitan alcoholic blend has become a resident of Florida Cheryl Cook. Working at the bar, she decided to create a purely female alcoholic masterpiece - an alternative martini. To do this, it included cranberry and lemon juice. It is a pity, but such a mixture was not long enjoyed success.

The “daddy” of the Cosmopolitan drink was a resident of Manhattan - the bartender Toby Qizzini.He decided to replace Triple-sec with Cointreau, and instead of lemon juice, take lime juice. This is how the classic version of Cosmo appeared. Specifically, this option in the eighties was recognized by the International Bartenders Association.

Why do Cosmopolitan like girls so much? First, there is no pronounced taste of vodka. Secondly, it has a low calorie content, which means it does not affect the figure, and is suitable even for those who are on a strict diet.

Mild in taste, with a light aroma of cranberries, Cosmo is poured into stylish wide cocktail glasses - martinini glass. If you have prepared this masterpiece at home and do not have a special container at home, you can serve in any beautiful glasses.
