Rediscovered Cherry Cosmo

As served at STK in the Cosmopolitan, $15

STK New York put the “rediscovered” into the Rediscovered Cherry Cosmo while it’s mixologists were playing around with flavored vodkas and happening upon the recipe for this cherry-rrific white cosmo, the perfect welcome for your visit to STK at the Cosmopolitan. Pleasing to the consummate cocktailian, yet simple enough for the mixologically wary to wrap their palates around, the cocktail naturally appeals mostly to the female contingent and is overwhelmingly STK’s best-seller. However, “When guys do try it,” The One Group’s ( corporate mixologist Shawn Sugrue adds, “they admit that it is really good.” Faced with a delicious cherry cocktail, they cannot tell a lie.

  • ½ ounce fresh sour mix
  • Splash freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Dried or brandied cherry garnish
