The Cosmopolitan - Sex and the City

Ms. Cosmopolitan

Prepare to toast a round of Cosmopolitan cocktails when "Sex and the City 2" hits theaters nationwide on May 27th.

The Cosmopolitan cocktail :

The cosmopolitan gained popularity in the 1990s. The cosmo was further popularized among young women by its frequent mention on the television program
Sex and the City, where Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, commonly ordered the drink when out with her girlfriends. The film adaptation made a reference to its popularity when Miranda asks why they stopped drinking them, Carrie replies 'because everyone else started.'

.... well, it's time to start again.

Chill martini glasses.

Mix 2 parts lemon vodka to one part triple sec combined with one part cranberry and the juice of half a lime. Cointreau or other high-quality triple sec provides a clean taste and the cranberry juice adds the beautiful deep rose colour.

A lime wedge is always used to garnish. Traditionally a coin sized piece of orange should be "flamed" across the top of the drink. This coats the drink with a slick of citrus oil.

Signed and numbered, limited edition prints of my painting 'Ms. Cosmopolitan' are available for purchase. Why not have it in time for YOUR Cosmo party !!

Ms. Cosmopolitan.
