There's much to like about the Cosmo Sour cocktail, as sweet and sour clash in this party in a glass. Here's how to make one at home for your next celebratory occasion or fun night in.

The Cosmo Sour cocktail, a slight twist on the classic Cosmopolitan made famous by hit series Sex and the City, has evolved into a cult favourite across both genders for its good-time mix of sweet and sour.

With your favourite vodka at the heart of the Cosmo Sour, the cocktail is best suited for afternoons and evenings at cocktail bars, gastro pubs and celebratory occasions at home. 

Our friends at Bourke Street Green have put together a Cosmo Sour cocktail recipe that brings out the best of this party in a glass.

Grab the ingredients below and follow along with the video to make your own delicious Cosmo Sour cocktail at home. Alternatively, head down to Bourke Street Green in the heart of the Melbourne CBD and enjoy this cocktail made by expert bartenders in a lush green oasis, with an open air roof and gourmet pizzas to boot.
