Aided by HBO's wildly popular "Sex and the City", whose characters were often seen with a Cosmopolitan in hand, this light pink drink may have been the most popular cocktail in America during the mid-1990s and early 2000s. The history of the drink actually doesn't date much earlier and was invented in the mid-'80s when flavored vodka was getting its foothold behind the bar.

Absolut Citron is a defining ingredient in the original Cosmo, and we know what you're thinking: Is there non-alcoholic vodka? Not really, but there are several wonderful alternatives. Here we're going to use Seedlip Grove 42—which works great in place of citrus vodka in drinks like this one or a Lemon Drop—and you can find a few more suggestions in the notes below the recipe.
