What Do You Include In The Cosmopolitan Gift Set?

Liquor: Cosmopolitan Drink Gift Set

What’s in a Cosmopolitan or Cosmo, for short? The classic version of this cocktail uses  the following:

  • Vodka
  • Cranberry juice (usually sweetened)
  • Simple syrup
  • Cointreau
  • Lime

The result is a beautiful, reddish-pink drink that looks aesthetically appealing.

The Cosmopolitan was supposedly invented by Toby Cecchin in 1988 at The Odeon, a buzzy restaurant in lower Manhattan. Or, we can say reinvented depending on whose story you hear of the Cosmopolitan’s origins. 

Toby used what was then the newly launched Absolut Citron and Cointreau triple sec with freshly squeezed lime juice and cranberry juice. 

But it wasn’t until the drink made an appearance in Sex and the City that the Cosmo really took off. With our cocktail gift baskets, you will receive fascinating snippets of your drink as well.

At 180 Drinks, we also add our detailed tasting notes along with your Cosmopolitan cocktail gift set. This allows your giftee to appreciate the finer nuances of this famous drink.

Cosmopolitan Gift Basket With Fruits And Vegetables

You can complement your Cosmopolitan gift basket with our seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables. 

At 180 Drinks, we source organic fruits and vegetables to ensure that your drink carries only the freshest aromas and flavors.

Cosmopolitan Gift Set With Herbs And Spices

At 180 Drinks, we can add herbs and spices to your Cosmopolitan cocktail gift set that enhance the gifting experience.

The original Cosmo recipe doesn’t include herbs, but you can always be inventive! Try adding an herbal spin to the Cosmopolitan with a sprig of rosemary. Or perhaps, thyme?

Cosmopolitan Gift Basket Citrus Fruits 

At 180 Drinks, we can add in fresh citrus fruits to your Cosmopolitan cocktail gift basket and make it a wholesome experience. Lime and orange wedges or twists are classic garnishes for the Cosmopolitan. 

Even if you aren’t using our fresh citrus fruits as garnishes, we always recommend adding in this option. Because when you think about it, nothing quite spells summer and spring like citrus, does it?

Sweeteners For Your Cosmopolitan Drink Gift Set

To achieve a balance with the sour notes of the cranberry and citrus, typically a sweeter is used for a Cosmopolitan cocktail. This may be from the already sweetened cranberry juice and the Cointreau, or for a non traditional variation could even be cotton candy!

Various preparations of this drink may substitute other sweeteners to augment the flavors.

Bitters For A Different Cosmopolitan Cocktail Gift Set

The original Cosmo recipe doesn’t really call for the use of bitters. But we have found that bitters can be a wonderful addition to the Cosmopolitan’s unique flavors. 

We recommend adding orange bitters, for example, to give you a bit of edge to the otherwise sweet-tasting drink. Complexity and flavor? You have it right there! And don’t worry. Adding a touch of bitters won’t make your drink bitter! It just hits all the right notes on your tongue!

Garnishes With The Cosmopolitan Gift Box

A small drink garnish in your cocktail is a nice detail to any drink, and is especially a nice twist on the Cosmopolitan. 

 

Typical garnishes include lime wedges or orange twists, which are our favorites. 

Ice To Go With The Cosmopolitan Cocktail Gift Set

For the perfect chilled cocktails, you need the perfect ice. Use ice that is fresh – and that’s what we provide here. Partially melted or wet ice will dilute that Cosmo, and that’s not a pleasant experience!

We provide large ice cube trays to create ice that doesn’t melt easily. This ensures that your drink stays perfect as it is sipped. And cocktails are meant to be savored slowly.

The Best Glassware 

A cocktail is not quite a cocktail unless it’s presented well. You can use any cocktail glass for the Cosmo. This includes the most commonly used Martini glass. 

But you can also experiment with a coupe. Remember one thing though: whatever glassware you choose to gift, make sure that your giftee will chill it in the freezer before making the cocktail! 

This keeps the drink better for longer. Check with us for choosing the right glassware with your gift.

Recipe Cards

At 180 Drinks, we want to make the process of gifting hassle-free and easy. It’s why we like to customize every option in your gift. 

Apart from the tasting notes, we also include recipe cards. An instructional video will guide the giftee through the drink building process. 

Foodie Gifts

You can complement your drink gift with other savories. Most of our customers order chocolate as a complementary addition to the drink gift basket. 

But chocolate may not always go with cocktails. To offset that, we have a range of other foods you can include such as: 

  • Hummus and crackers
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Jerky
  • Pretzels
  • Nuts
  • Spreads
  • Popcorn

Bar Tools With The Cosmopolitan Gift Box

We can also add bar tools to make the cocktail experience better for you. Some of the most common bar tools and gifts for a Cosmopolitan cocktail gift are:

  • Muddlers
  • Strainers
  • Bar spoons
  • Jiggers
  • Bottle openers
  • Corkscrew
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail pourer
professional mixology class tools

Personalize Your Cosmopolitan Gift Basket 

We can personalize any of your cocktail gifts with a special message to the giftee. This is especially great if you are looking for personalized Cosmopolitan birthday gift ideas. 

All you have to do is add a note at the time of ordering. We will make sure the recipient gets it!

Combine all these ingredients into a cocktail shaker. You get that with our bar tools, remember! Shake well and strain. Pour into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge or an orange twist.
