Whatever your feelings are regarding the Cosmopolitan, it is arguably one of the most influential cocktails to come along in the past 25 years. Now, it's time for an upgrade, a re-imagined Cosmo for today's tastes.
Note: If you can't find cranberry sorbet at your local grocer, there are several great recipes online. One of my favorites is a cranberry vanilla sorbet from Lottie and Doof.
