Classic Cosmopolitan

During the late 1990s, it was impossible to enter a bar and not hear a few ladies (and occasionally some dudes) declare, “I’ll have a Cosmo!” Nowadays, the drink carries a shroud of shame—it’s pink and passé after all—but it’s still a tasty cocktail that packs a punch.

For more cranberry juice cocktails, see our Sex on the Beach recipe and our Moscow Mule recipe.
