This is the first time I've tasted a Cosmopolitan and I love it. It's simple to make and very smooth going down. A nice refreshing drink that I can see myself making for guests during summer.
This is the quintessential Cosmopolitan—perfectly proportioned with a nice, sweet tang. I highly recommend purchasing 100% cranberry juice to elevate the flavor of this cocktail. Chilling your martini glass is a plus, too. Cheers!
