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.
