The original recipe of the Cosmopolitan prescribes a mix of vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lime juice but today there are also some good varieties such as this fruity Red Currant Cosmopolitan. The cocktail itself was invented by Miami bartender Cheryl Cook in the late eighties and boomed as it became the signature cocktail of the popular television show 'Sex and The City'. The Cosmo became the drink for sassy, classy and indepent women all over the world and is easily recognized by its velvet red color and the elegance of the Martini glass.
Replace the red currants by cranberries to prepare the world renowned Cranberry Cosmopolitan.
Prepare a White Cosmopolitan with 100 gr of white currants, 50 ml of Cointreau and 150 ml of lime juice instead of 50 ml of lemon juice. Follow this recipe for the other ingredients and the preparation of the cocktail.
Instead of Cointreau, you can use Grand Marnier or dry Vermouth.
