A Wild Twist on the Cosmopolitan

Take your cocktail to new heights with the twist on the Absolut Classic.

You should never need an excuse to enjoy a refreshing Cosmo. But, just in case, let us remind you that May 7th is officially National Cosmopolitan Day.

While the cocktails origins have long been debated, few would argue with the one essential ingredient that should make it into any Cosmopolitan worthy of the name: Absolut Citron. It’s become the favored choice since 1988, when we first launched the smooth, mellow, lemon flavored vodka.

But why stop there? Once you’ve mastered the iconic Cosmopolitan, there are plenty of variations you can try. For instance, you could use Absolut Wild Tea to give the sophisticated concoction a contemporary twist, turning National Cosmopolitan Day into National Cosmopolitan Night.

New to Absolut Wild Tea? The rich, aromatic flavor combines the dark, mysterious richness of black tea and the delicate character of Scandinavian white elderflower. And with an added hint of red apples and citrus, the taste is smooth, floral, naturally sweet with a pleasant dryness. Ideal for the strong, sweet, sour and bitter elements that make a great Cosmopolitan.
