Cosmopolitan Vodka Lime Juice Cranberry Juice Orange Liqueur Shaken Cocktail

The origin of the Cosmopolitan, or informally the cosmo, is disputed. Some believe it to be a riff on the Kamikazi which uses vodka, triple sec, and lime juice. Others believe it to be an adaptation of a 1930s daisy recipe with the same name, that consists of gin, cointreau, lemon juice, and raspberry syrup. It is also a relative of the two ingredient Cape Cod(der).

Its modern popularity began in the 1990s, following its feature in the hit TV show Sex in the City.
