The Cosmopolitan (aka "Cosmo") is a vodka-based cocktail that has become very popular with women, especially since its prominent appearance on the HBO television show "Sex and the City." Legend has it the Cosmopolitan was originally served to South Beach, Florida party-leavers.[1] The Cosmopolitan, or "Cosmo" is a sweet-tart combination of citrus and cranberry flavors that, conveniently, is an attractive pink colour when mixed and served properly.
