We were not let down by the Cosmopolitan Cocktail. The drink had a nice flavor with a hint of orange and cranberry. The lime juice added a bit of sourness, but it was not so much as to overwhelm the other ingredients. It was so tasty that I was a bit taken aback that this drink is not more popular than it is. I was commenting to Mrs. Bottle that we should make a special effort to let the world know about this fabulous Cosmopolitan Cocktail. Mrs. Bottle told me that the drink had a brief measure of notoriety ten years ago when it was frequently mentioned on a TV show called Sex and the City. It probably didn’t catch on since they did not refer to it by its proper name. Instead of calling it the Cosmopolitan Cocktail they called it the Cosmo, but I ‘m not sure why. I guess they were Seinfeld fans.

The other difference between the recipes from Mr. Boston and the IBA is the total volume of the drink. Our version only has 2 ounces but the IBA’s has 3.4 ounces. Of course the Mr. Boston recipe has more alcohol, so that give it a slight edge. Tiny drinks have been a common theme in our journey, but this time we were ready. I happen to be an expert at making things look bigger than they are so we poured this into a shot glass so make it appear to be normal sized. If only it were always that easy.
