The show's iconic 5 cocktails you can make at home

Drinks experts at online drinks retailer, The Bottle Club, have taken a deep dive into the phenomenon that is Sex and the City, to highlight some of the most notable cocktails and drinks enjoyed by the characters during the past 25 years. As well as recipes for avid fans to recreate as they settle down to reacquaint themselves with Carrie and her crew. 


Very few cocktails are as instantly recognisable as the cosmo. Undoubtedly the most famous of all the drinks featured across the original series, the cosmopolitan was reportedly first created in 1975, but became a global phenomenon during the late nineties as Sex and the City grew in popularity, and audiences were keen to start emulating their favourite fictional characters' bar orders on nights out. 

Not overly sweet or too tart, the cosmopolitan is perfect for impressing guests, and can be taken to the next level with a high end vodka or by including fresh, rather than bottled, lime juice.

The Flirtini cocktail was enjoyed by all four of the main characters during a roof party towards the end of the season 3, during the episode titled ‘Cock-a-doodle-do’. The cocktail itself is perfect for brunches, picnics or BBQs as it can be made in batches or stored in jugs for sharing among a large group.

In a show so synonymous with the city of Manhattan, it goes without saying that this iconic drink made its fair share of appearances throughout the six seasons, with PR socialite Samantha Jones ordering the tipple on several occasions.

 Created in the 1800s and named after the bar it was first developed in, the cocktail remains a firm favourite amongst whiskey drinkers to this day.

The ‘Ruby’ cocktail was referenced in season 4, episode 12 of the show titled ‘Just Say Yes’, as Carrie and Samantha sit in the New York bar and discuss her engagement to Aidan. 
Interestingly, the show's version of the drink was created by the the Florida Citrus Commission in order to boost sales of the Florida grapefruit and to act as somewhat of a replacement or alternative to their longstanding favourite, the cosmopolitan.

Dirty Martini

The appearance of the ‘dirty martini’ on Sex and the City is perhaps most remembered for being the drink that Samantha Jones throws in the face of her cheating lover, Richard Wright, during season 5.
A drink for lovers of salty flavours, adding olive brine to the ingredients of a classic gin or vodka martini is what makes the drink ‘dirty’ - due to its change in appearance from clear to cloudy.

Add a martini glass to the fridge or freezer to chill. Thread olives onto a cocktail stick and set aside. Fill a jug or mixing glass with ice, as well as the gin, vermouth and olive brine. Stir gently until the outside of the jug or glass feels cold. Strain into your martini glass, garnish with olive skewer and serve. 

Peach Bellini

The Sex and the City girls weren’t just partial to enjoying cocktails during evenings out in bars and restaurants, as they also enjoyed a freshly-mixed drink with their long weekend brunches while catching up. 
Along with a classic bloody mary, the peach bellini was among the most notable ‘brunch’ cocktails consumed by characters during the course of the show, and it’s not difficult to see why.
