A Cosmopolitan at the Cosmopolitan

Cosmopolitans at The Cosmopolitan

Cosmopolitans at The Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino, Las Vegas

They say that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas — I wish that applied to the extra weight I add every time I go! Any way, although I’m not much of a drinker, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to have a Cosmopolitan while visiting the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino located in the middle of the Strip in Las Vegas.

When I do drink, I like my drinks sweet with a touch of tart, so I tend to go for the fruity drinks like the Strawberry Margarita or a Banana Daiquiri. Most Cosmopolitans I’ve had in the past are pretty fruity, probably because they are made with cranberry juice. Here are the typical ingredients:

Vodka
TripleSec
Lime Juice
Cranberry Juice

The cosmopolitan does it slightly different. I’m pulling this from memory, so don’t get mad if it’s not exact.

Absolute Citron – lemon-flavored vodka
TripleSec
Pink Grapefruit Juice
Cranberry Juice

It was not as sweet as I usually like my drinks, but it was tasty — but also pricey. Two of them were $32! This is why I don’t drink a lot — I just don’t think I get $16 of value in a cocktail, no matter how tasty. But in that moment, it was something fun to do with my boyfriend, so it was OK.
