Best Cosmopolitans in Detroit
Looking for a great "Sex and the City" styled cosmopolitan? You’re best
bet is to stick to the traditional martini bars in Detroit, but why
restrict yourself? Most restaurants and bars have the capabilites to
mix up a sexy cosmo, but are they any good?
This drink, made popular by the HBO Series “Sex and the City,” is harder to find than you think. Simple ingredients -- vodka, lime juice, triple sec, cranberry juice and a lime garnish -- but difficult to make. Variations are acceptable, and actually encouraged: the vodka for citrus vodka, the triple sec for Cointreau or Grand Marnier, lime or lemon, and lime juice mixtures or pure lime juice.
So if Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha showed up at my doorstep I’d take them to Centaur Bar, Atlas or Sweet Georgia Brown for the best cosmopolitans in town.

My rules of the game: I ordered the basic cosmopolitan served at that venue -- what was advertised or -- when I asked -- followed the suggestion of the server. So, it is not apples to apples. Everything from the choice of the vodkas (Smirnoff, Absolut Citron, Grey Goose, brand X) to the lemon or lime garnish was a decision made by the bartender.
