The Cosmo, short for Cosmopolitan of course, is my go to cocktail even though it’s wine that you’ll find me drinking most of the time. It’s those times that I’m going for hard liquor and want to feel all sophisticated with a cocktail glass in my hand that The Cosmo will make an appearance.

When I started blogging a couple of years ago, I had this cocktail prepped for a blog post, a sort of toast to the blogging world was my anticipated theme. I had written text, snapped a few photos, took a few more and more again until it eventually sat on the back burner. What I quickly learned was that taking photos of cocktails and/or beverages in general was not as easy as one might think. I really struggled with it and still have much to learn. So, while the premise of The Cosmo post has changed slightly since my first attempt, my love of the drink has not. It’s the citrus note, splash of tartness and hint of sweetness that makes it a favourite of mine and the reason I’ll likely drink two!!
