It is the simplicity and freshness that sets this cocktail apart from many others. Lip-smacking, smooth, tart and sweet, the Cosmopolitan made with 'Vodka', 'Cranberry', 'Orange Liqueur' and 'Citrus', is always enticing when poured into a glass. While it is touted to have originated in New York, it does not really matter who invented the drink, what matters is that it made Martinis and mixology cool again. Been around for several decades, this cocktail enjoys popularity worldwide and Mumbai is no exception. It is now a drink you are able to order in any cocktail bar. Over the years, the Cosmo as it is popularly called has appeared in several incarnations but its fame has never waned. Bartenders in Mumbai continue to experiment and play around with it, often serving a smoked version too, but there is nothing quite like the classic. Pay a tribute to this matchless cocktail and sip one on World Cosmopolitan Day on May 7th. My recommendation for top 5 places in Mumbai for Cosmopolitan.
This vibrant and funky place serves a Cosmopolitan that is easy-on-the-wallet and no compromise on the ingredients or flavours. So catch up with friends and celebrate with this classic cocktail.
Vodka, Cointreau, cranberry and lime, when mixed, never tasted so go well as they do here in the classic cocktail Cosmopolitan. Perhaps the idyllic setting at Dome has a role to play as well, but this alluring cocktail is a treat for tipple lovers.
A plethora of Woodside Inn concoctions, shots, tipples are on offer as part of their exhaustive bar menu, but, opt for the Cosmopolitan here, as it is done just right. No messing here with this classic. The bartender adroitly creates your cocktail and leaves you to enjoy your luscious Cosmo.
The comfortable ambience and pulsating vibe of Hitchki make it the perfect place to relax and unwind with a well-made Cosmopolitan. No reason needed to enjoy this classic, which never fails to uplift your mood.
Their version of Cosmopolitan is as authentic as it can get and one that you should-not-miss. The ingredients are perfectly balanced in your Martini glass, so sit back and enjoy this out-of-the-world experience in this spacious, casual dining place.
