What Is a Cosmopolitan Cocktail?

A Cosmopolitan is a sweetish cocktail that is made with vodka, orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime. We believe It was created by a bartender in the 1970s. It has since become one of the most popular cocktails worldwide.

How to make a Cosmopolitan cocktail

Cosmopolitan variations

White Cosmopolitan

There are many variations of this drink. Some add other ingredients like orange juice, grapefruit juice, or pineapple juice, But there is one variation that we prefer and this is the White Cosmopolitan.

To make the White Cosmopolitan just replace the regular cranberry juice with white cranberry juice, and that’s it.


The Cosmocello cocktail is delicious, refreshing, and easy to make. To make it you will just need to replace the lime juice with Limoncello. It is typically served in a martini glass.
