History: Long before Sex and the City was even a glimmer in a writers eyes, the Cosmopolitan had a long and seedy history in the underground speakeasies throughout America.  Back in the 1800’s, the rich and famous were well known for having lavish swinging sex  parties with chalices made of gold, food fit for kings and a special concoction made from  vodka, cranberry,  imported lime and other sweet and tasty additions.  It was told that many times after one of these all night love fests a member of the elite would be caught wandering the city streets… hair disheveled, clothes amiss and mumbling of having been to foreign lands and experienced new and fantastic cultures.  These walk of shamers’ soon became known as the Cosmopolitans and the drink became known as their vice.
