The Cosmopolitan cocktail became a symbol of 90s chic thanks primarily to Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City sipping on her Cosmo whilst putting the world to rights.

This vibrant drink combines vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and lime juice to create a balance of tart and sweet, served in a chilled martini glass with a citrus twist.


  • 2 oz or 60 ml Vodka
  • 1 oz or 30 ml Cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz or 15 ml Triple sec
  • 1/2 oz or 15 ml Fresh lime juice
  • Ice
  • Orange twist (for garnish)


  1. Add: In a shaker, combine vodka, cranberry juice, triple sec, and lime juice with ice.
  2. Mix: Shake well until the mixture is chilled.
  3. Pour: Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  4. Garnish: Add a twist of orange.


The Cosmopolitan became massively popular in the 1990s, partly due to its frequent appearance in popular culture (à la Sex and the City), epitomising the era’s cocktail renaissance.

Its crisp, tart flavour profile and vibrant colour make the Cosmo ideal for any chic celebration or gathering.
