Mixing up a batch of Cosmos before heading to the SATC2 opening tonight? Try a modern twist on the classic cocktail created by Dale DeGroff. Dale created the original legendary cocktail at a Grammy's party in 1992 at the Rainbow Room. Madonna and her entourage were seated in the VIP section when she requested a "chic and delicious" cocktail. DeGroff served her the first ever Cosmo and the legend was born.
