The Cosmopolitan

No, NOT that cosmopolitan!

THIS Cosmopolitan

THIS Cosmopolitan is a kind of cocktail mixed with vodka and the cranberry juice.  Since the seventies, where it came out from the gay communities and seedy bars, the cocktail spread out from one bar to another until it was settled to shine from the fingers of desperate women of the HBO Series "Sex and the City".  The recipe for the cosmo vary for bartender to bartender, but the main ingredients -- vodka and cranberry juice -- remains the constant base.  

Here's a variant of the cosmo cited from this site:

  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Cocktail
  • Ingredients:
    • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
    • Orange peel for garnish
  • Preparation:
  1. Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel.
Optionally, use citron vodka in place of unflavored vodka for a fruitier taste.

So that's about it.  Oh wait there's more.  There's a game about how to make a good cosmo in picking out an ingredient in a cabinet of ingredients.  Click on the image below to lead you there.
Results are ranked by the bartender, who also tastes your cocktail, and by mean ranked, it means reactions, like this one:

Epic Fail at it's Finest.

'Ta for now!
