I’d never had one of these before, probably because of my aversion to anything that becomes really popular really fast (thanks, 'Sex and the City'). But now that all the cosmo hysteria has died down, I figured this was as good a time as any to give it a try. And you know what? It’s popular for a good reason: it’s an awesome drink. This libation smells like 7Up and has a nice, tartly sweet flavor that gives way to a fine, boozy warmth. Good stuff.
