Cosmopolitan cocktail with Ketel One
JL Studios

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.
