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:
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
Pink Grapefruit 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.
