Bringing in the New Year with a
Cosmo – Cointreau
The Cosmopolitan was created by Toby Cecchini in New York City at The Odeon in 1988. Cecchini took an existing, imperfect cocktail making the rounds in San Francisco and added Cointreau and fresh juices, establishing the elegant recipe that tipped the world into the modern craft cocktail movement. This blush pink cocktail has an established history as one of the most well-known classic cocktails, and certainly the most iconic drink to emerge from the 80s. A mainstay at top bars around the world, The Cosmopolitan has influenced pop culture - from the big screen to fashion runways - and remains a cocktail of choice for tastemakers worldwide.
