Mal Masterclass: The Cosmopolitan
Fashion move in cycles. In the 2000s your mum's old shoulder pads and neon ankle warmers had a brief revival, and now it's the turn of the 1990s to make its return as retro fashion. Yep, it's making me feel old too.
Most 90s fashions were terrible; skin-tone lipstick, body warmers, Hanson. But one 90s trend we can all agree became an instant classic is the yummy Cosmopolitan.
Rocketed to fame after countless mentions on Sex and the City, this luscious pink cocktail is pure 90s in a glass. Vibrant, blush pink, deliciously sweet.
There are hundreds of variations on the Cosmo, but we think we've cracked the code for the perfect recipe. Give it a try at home to upgrade your bartending skills and impress all who take a sip.
