The Cosmopolitan (Round One)

This was one of the very first cocktails we tried a few years back. I'm tempted to try another one from a reputable cocktail bar. This is the review I typed up shortly after.

  1. Petrol
  2. Abomination
Looks very sophisticated and tastes like antiseptic.

May you be warned; the cocktail of choice most probably made famous by one of my favourite TV shows "Sex & the City", the Cosmopolitan is infact a lethal, horrible drink that one should never indulge in!

I had always wanted to try a Cosmopolitan ever since i saw them on Sex & The City. OHHHHH what a let down that was!
How can one describe the tastes we were left with after trying a Cosmopolitan? LET ALONE the after taste!!

Some of the tastes we came up to describe it were: Cow's anus, Listerine, Morning Fresh washing liquid, Bleach, and the list goes on..... I'm thinking if i was going to get food poisoning from my burger earlier that evening, this cocktail would have KILLED any germs that were living inside of me!

You know when you take a sip of something and you have a werid body twitch when it goes down..... yah, you'll be doing that non-stop when you drink a Cosmopolitan. It's FINE if you don't inhale whilst drinking it, but other than that your basically screwed if you want to look cool whilst drinking this stylish cocktail.

So, Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samatha; I don't know how you do it, but all i can say is, your Cosmopolitans must have been substituted for Ribena or just plain cranberry juice cos the cocktail is just ... there are no words! THEY ARE FERAL!! DON'T EVER HAVE ONE!!

What's in a Cosmo? I always thought it was Vodka and Cranberry. And that combination I kind of enjoy!

I think there are a few versions. This one was from Crown Casino and I'm pretty sure they don't know how to make cocktails properly. We were once served the wrong cocktail!!


* 1 1/2 oz vodka
* 1 oz Cointreau
* 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
* 1/4 oz cranberry juice
* orange peel for garnish


1. Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
