Let’s face it, the Cosmo was sooooo last decade. Yet, weirdly enough, it still remains one of the most commonly ordered drinks at bars. I blame this partially on lack of bartender creativity combined with lack of knowledge on the consumer end.
Anyways…. I almost never drink vodka, partly because I think it’s a flavorless spirit that adds nothing but an alcoholic backbone to cocktails, but mostly because I am a gin girl. I recently found myself in possession of vodka, leftover from an evening of Bloody Beers with a fellow beer mixologist, and said what the hell, let’s use it. Since, naturally, I am a gin martini girl, the first vodka cocktail I could think of was the Cosmopolitan. Not typically a fan of the Cosmo, I took it upon myself to sex up the concoction with a beeralicious twist.
