How to make a perfect Cosmopolitan cocktail. Various sources credit the barmaid cheryl cook as the creator of the cocktail. According to these sources, Cheryl invented the recipe between 1985 and 1986, while she was working at a bar located in South Beach, Florida with the intention of creating a glamorous cocktail for her most select clientele. Dale DeGroff, one of the greatest bartenders in the world in the early 1990s, transformed the recipe as we know it today by including the cocktail on the menu of the Rainbow Room restaurant in New York in 1996. Shortly after, the singer Madonna was photographed drinking this cocktail at the bar after the Grammys. After the photos of Madonna with the cocktail in her hand were published, bartenders and owners of bars and restaurants from all over the world called asking for information about what the singer and actress was drinking. It was from that moment on when it became popular all over the world and thanks to the successful television series “Sex in the City” (Sex in New York), where the main character, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), used to ask for it when she went out with her friends.
