Top 10 Fourth of July drinks3rd July, 2013 by Andy Young
Cocktails – Cosmopolitan
With red, white and blue beers and wine now taken care of, the final option for your Fourth of July drinks is a selection of cocktails. First up is the red version and the Cosmopolitan is a classic American cocktail. Bartenders from San Francisco, Miami and New York have all claimed to have invented the Cosmopolitan, which became hugely popular during the 1980s and 1990s. The drink’s popularity then soared among the gay community before becoming more mainstream after featuring in the hit US TV show Sex and the City.
The cocktail is made with vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and lime juice and is a great American red cocktail for Independence Day.
