The Cosmopolitan basically the love child of a Cape Codder and a Margarita, and is a legitimately distinguished sour cocktail in its own right. This updated recipe comes from Sarah Morrisey from Ernesto’s in New York, whose recipe took first place in a blind taste-test organized by PUNCH (an online cocktail magazine).
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass, or a short glass with ice. Express an orange peel over the drink and discard. Garnish with a lime wedge.
