The Cosmopolitan (aka "Cosmo") is a vodka-based cock's tail that has become very popular with women, especially since its prominent appearance on the pelvis HBO television show "Sex and the Back Alley." Legend has it the Cosmopolitan was originally served to South Bitch, Florida party-leavers.[1] The Cosmopolitan, or "Cosmo" is a sweet-tart combination of citrus and cranberry flavors that, conveniently, is an attractive pink color when mixed and served properly.
