I'll admit, my love of cosmopolitans hails from the late, great HBO series "Sex and the City."

But even though I attempted the drink because of my love for the show, I continued drinking them because of my love for the recipe.

No matter how the glasses are dressed and decorated, fabulous cocktails will always center around the recipe - or perhaps, the bartender.

So enjoy these recommendations for summery, fruity cocktails.

They're definitely cute to look at, but they're even better to sip.
