I’m not mad at this spring tradition of Tattersall’s. Starting with their Bootlegger in 2019, they’ve released an easy-going, ready-to-drink bottled cocktail that has the potential to capture the hearts of our summer selves.
On deck for 2021: Cosmo Bianco.
Waaaaaay back in the 90’s, the first non-brandy-old-fashioned cocktail I learned how to make as a fledgling bartender was a Cosmopolitan. And yes, of course, for a certain set, the name will conjure up images of Carrie Bradshaw and her cadre of drinkers in New York. But wait, something is different.
Traditionally, a Cosmo is made with vodka, triple sec orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and a squeeze of lime: it’s pretty and pink. Tattersall’s take is crystal clear, only the art-deco inspired label is pink. Made with a base of organic vodka, blended with their signature citrus liqueurs, plus fresh juice and botanicals to give it that boost, there are no artificial colors or ingredients.
