Thirsty Thursday- The Cosmopolitan

Its Thursday...and you know what that means! Its time for another classic cocktail!

The Cosmopolitan!
Brought back to life by the Sex and The City gals but originally enjoyed much before their time. There is some speculation over when the Cosmopolitan was created. Its believed to be in the 1970's by various bar tenders but officially, John Caine, in 1987 brought the Cosmopolitan to San Fransisco from Minnesota. There is also another story about the cocktails origin which includes bartender Cheryl Cook. She says:
"What overwhelmed me was the number of people who ordered Martinis just to be seen with a Martini glass in their hand. It was on this realization that gave me the idea to create a drink that everyone could palate and was visually stunning in that classic glass. This is what the Cosmo was based on."

Well, whoever invented it, we're glad they did!

What you will need:
1oz of vodka
1/2 oz of triple sec
1/2 oz of lime juice
1/2 oz of cranberry juice

What to do:
Put vodka, triple sec, lime and cranberry juice in a shaker filled with ice.
Strain into a martini glass
Garnish with a lime wedge

How easy and delicious!
