The Charlotte Cosmopolitan

White Cosmopolitan Recipe
Matthew Kelly/Supercall

Inspired by Charlotte York of Sex and the City (the show that made the Cosmo famous), this ultra-feminine White Cosmopolitan created by Kevin Denton, National Mixologist at Pernod-Ricard, is made with tart Absolut Lime vodka, white cranberry juice, St-Germain and a sprig of mint. Though she was a stickler for tradition, we think Charlotte would approve of this elegant and not too crazy variation on the classic, whose clear contents would pose no risk of staining her tennis whites.
