Mix vodka, Triple Sec and cranberry juice with a twist and you get a cosmopolitan. As of late March or early April, look for the Cosmopolitan Bar and Grill to open at 2933 O'Donnell St. in Canton. (It's where Shanghai Lil's used to be.) Cosimo Savino, one of the owners, says the Cosmopolitan will feature a martini bar specializing in cosmos, the trendy mixed drink described above. Other owners include the Liberatore brothers, who are involved with several area Italian restaurants. Cosmopolitan's food won't be Italian, though.
