Carrie Bradshaw and the gals of Sex and the City may have made the Cosmopolitan Martini super popular 20 years ago, but the classic pink drink is NOT “soooo last century”.

This delicious Cosmopolitan recipe is a great one to try if you’re a Cosmo newbie. There are so many variations on the classic Cosmo too.
