The Cosmopolitan is certainly one of the most popular cocktail of our time and like many great drinks the origins are not 100% clear. There are unsubstantiated rumours that a woman named Cheryl Cook invented it in South Beach, Miami, though even Dale DeGroff is credited with its creation.

The cocktail became a something of a social phenomenon in the aftermath of HBO’s hit series ‘Sex in the City’, with the Cosmopolitan being Carrie Bradshaw’s, the series’ main character, favourite drink.

Vodka

Cointreau

Fresh Lime Juice

Cranberry Juice

Flamed orange peel for garnish

Method:
Add all ingredients to a Boston shaker; fill with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
