An Adaptable Cosmopolitan Cocktail

An Adaptable Cosmopolitan Cocktail

In case you couldn’t help but wonder, this more refined Cosmopolitan is not a robust red but a dusty pink, deeply chilled, and walks the line between sweet and sour. You can even shed the notion that it must be served in a martini glass, and serve it in a coupe or smaller cocktail glass instead. Whatever your vessel, tuck it in the freezer for about 10 minutes to properly chill before pouring.
  • Serves: 1 person
