As we hit the peak of summer, our Kocktail curator Neil Donachie has pulled a delight of a twist of two classics out of his bag of fine ingredients. The Tequila Cosmo is delicious cross between the famous Cosmopolitan and Margarita cocktails.
The Cosmopolitan was originally made with citrus vodka and was perfected and popularised in 1990s New York City and, along the way, rose to fame during TVs Sex and the City as Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite drink.
The Margarita, part of the ‘sour’ cocktail family, traditionally consists of three ingredients; tequila, triple sec and lime juice. From shaken, to spicy, to frozen, the Margarita has become a category of cocktail in itself with numerous variations now being created.
The combination of these two modern-day classics results in a crowd-pleasing, elegant cocktail sure to liven up any evening!
