The 90's icon you'll want today
The Cosmopolitan is a storied cocktail with a legion of staunch devotees and hardened critics. Toby Cecchini, who devised the drink in 1988 at NYC’s famed Odeon, is to thank for the modern Cosmo and for it later becoming a reoccurring character in the 1990s HBO show “Sex and the City." Although the drink became a favorite of celebrities and regular Carrie Bradshaw fans alike, it also earned the ire of many bartenders and skeptical onlookers as a feminine, cheap fad. Through this unfortunate stigma, the Cosmo is a fine sour and is an undisputed modern classic.
