Cosmopolitan Cocktail (1934 recipe)

Main Spirit Gin
Difficulty Easy
Technique Shaken

Long before Sex In The City got hold of it, the Cosmopolitan Cocktail looked a little different than it does today. Back in 1934, the drink utilised Gin, Cointreau, Lemon Juice and Raspberry Syrup for a more well-balanced version than what is often dished up today.


  • 2 oz. 60ml Gin
  • 0.5 oz. 15ml Cointreau
  • 0.75 oz. 23ml Lemon Juice
  • 0.25 oz. 8ml Raspberry Syrup
Display: oz. ml.




Shake all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a chilled Coupe glass
