Even as someone who considers herself to be a competent cook, I've always found making cocktails to be fairly intimidating. Beyond taking a while to master (it helps that I'm married to a fantastic cocktail-maker), it was years before I felt confident enough to know which drink was the right one to serve on different occasions, so our team put together a fun flowchart to help narrow down your choices, no matter the occasion! Some of the options are a little tongue-in-cheek, like drinking a vodka martini alone (which, for the record, is one of my favorite drinks!) but most of them are chosen to fit the occasion or season. I've also created a holiday cocktail, the Gilded Spritz, inspired by the cutest gold coupes in our shop. Scroll on for the recipe—cheers!
You will need:
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
Top with Champagne (2 to 4 ounces)
Fresh cranberries and a sprig of pine (as garnish)
How to make it:
Add to shaker with ice, and shake until fully chilled. Strain and pour into the coupe.
Garnish with fresh cranberries and a sprig of pine.
