Perfect Drink® recipe


The Cosmopolitan is a pink drink served in a Martini glass. Said to have originated in San Francisco in the 1980s, but it wasn't until 1988 - the year Absolut Citron was launched - that the Cosmopolitan as it is known today was created. Bartender Toby Cecchini adapted the original recipe, using fresh juice, orange liqueur, a splash of cranberry, and the first citrus-flavored vodka. The rest is history!
