About the Recipe
The Cosmopolitan's origins can be traced back to the 1970s, with competing claims for its invention. Most notably, bartender Toby Cecchini is credited with reviving the Cosmo in the late 1980s at The Odeon in New York City. A combination of premium ingredients and striking pink hue propelled the cocktail to fame during the 1990s, making it a symbol of urban sophistication and chic.
