National Cosmopolitan Day

National Cosmopolitan Day is an American holiday dedicated to the cocktail of the same name. It became very popular in its time and is still in demand today.

The history of National Cosmopolitan Day is not known. It was probably created by connoisseurs of the cocktail in order to perpetuate its name.

The Cosmopolitan is an American vodka cocktail that began to be made around the 1930s, but its popularity came in the 1970s. It became one of the most glamorous and iconic cocktails in the history of bartending. The cocktail in the original recipe was made with gin and raspberry syrup. Today, its composition has been greatly expanded, and quality vodka has been taken as the basis.

The result is a slightly sour, refreshing cocktail with berry notes. It’s perfect for a beautiful ending to an evening or a romantic stroll with a lady on the promenade.
