Raise your glass and let’s celebrate National Cosmopolitan Day! Every year on May 7th, cocktail enthusiasts around the world come together to toast to this iconic drink that has gained popularity over the years. But where did National Cosmopolitan Day come from, and what makes this cocktail so special?

History of the Cosmopolitan

The history of the cosmopolitan cocktail can be traced back to the 1930s, where it was known as the “daisy” cocktail. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the modern version of the cosmopolitan, as we know it today, gained widespread recognition. This cocktail is typically made with vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice, and freshly squeezed lime juice, giving it a sweet and tangy flavour profile with a vibrant pink hue.

The cosmopolitan gained mainstream popularity in the 1990s and early 2000s, thanks in part to its appearance on the hit TV show “Sex and the City.” The character of Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, famously sipped on cosmopolitans while navigating her glamorous New York City lifestyle. The drink quickly became synonymous with cosmopolitan women who enjoyed a night out on the town.

The cosmopolitan is not only a delicious drink, but it also holds a special place in popular culture. It has become a symbol of sophistication, glamour, and empowerment, often associated with strong, independent women who enjoy the finer things in life. It has been featured in countless movies, TV shows, and books, and has become an iconic cocktail that transcends time and trends.


In recent years, the cosmopolitan has become a classic cocktail that is beloved by many. It’s refreshing taste and eye-catching presentation, often served in a champagne coupe or a martini glass with a twist of lime, make it a favourite choice for cocktail enthusiasts and social media-worthy moments.


So, on May 7th, let’s raise a glass to National Cosmopolitan Day and honour this classic cocktail that has become a staple in modern cocktail culture. Whether you’re sipping it at a fancy rooftop bar, enjoying it with friends at a girls’ night out, or mixing it up at home, the cosmopolitan is a timeless libation that deserves to be celebrated. Cheers to the cosmopolitan, a drink that brings a touch of elegance and sophistication to any occasion!
