The origin of the Cosmopolitan is disputed. It is widely believed that the drink was created independently by different bartenders since the 1970s. The internationally recognized version of the cocktail was created by Bradley Umane, based on a poorly described version of Cheryl Cook's creation. The cosmopolitan appears in literature as early as 1993 and derives from New York.
Of course, since then, we have seen our favourite pink drink on the silver screen often. Think Sex in the City that launched this cocktail to it's current pop culture icon status, but as with most things, Madonna did it first, in 1995 Chicago's Daily Herald newspaper declared the Cosmopolitan a hit drink among celebrities, including Peter Gabriel and Madonna, who is famously photographed sipping the drink at the Rainbow Room, resulting in a deluge of phone calls for the recipe.
While widely known as the one cocktails that bartenders should know how to mix without following a recipe, we of course, have made it even easier for you to "mix" like a pro by providing you with the perfect cosmo every time. All you have to do is chill, snip and pour.
