Sarah Jessica Parker recently sat down with Vanity Fair where she mentioned she only "recently discovered" the cosmo. WHAT!? You're telling me that in all those years of strutting around NYC as Carrie Bradshaw she never so much as tried the now infamous cocktail? This. Is. WILD.
SJP went on to describe the bartender's hilarious reaction to when she finally ordered the drink. "...The bartender was like, 'Naturally.' I was like, 'No, I really don't drink cosmopolitans.' I've only recently even considered ordering one… but it was delicious," SJP told Vanity Fair.
So there you have it, folks. If you've been traipsing around swanky cocktail bars in Manhatten believing that your drink is that of legend, you're wrong. That is, until now. To get into the SATC mood, here's a delightful recipe for the show's most renowned cocktail. Enjoy!
1.5 fluid ounce vodka
1/2 fluid ounce cointreau
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 1/2 fluid ounces cranberry juice
1 twist lime zest, garnish
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with lots of ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
