The Cosmopolitan was popularised by American sitcom 'Sex and the City' and much like the show it was created in New York around the turn of the century.
It is a short, sweet, and sharp drink with a distinct citrusy flavour, a vibrant red cranberry colour and complex scent comprising of orange, lemon, and cranberries.
A flamed orange twist as garnish adds an additional layer of complexity to the taste and aroma, but this isn't strictly necessary to enjoy a good Cosmo.
