Color Pop Cocktails - The Martini Navratilova

One of my favorite perks of being an event planner is having the opportunity to collaborate with friendors on styled shoots and other creative projects. So when Kate from H&H Weddings asked me to work with her on creating a year-long series of cocktails, I was ecstatic. We started this little venture by brainstorming the various holidays we wanted to cover (National Doughnut Day, duh!) and then set off to find a dream team of vendors to make it all happen. With the team in place, we holed up at the Octavia & Brown showroom for an entire day in July and knocked out vignette after vignette for 13 total cocktails.

Today, I am beyond excited to present the first cocktail in the Color Pop Cocktails and H&H Sips series, the Martini Navratilova! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Ingredients:
2 oz. Vodka
 1 oz. Cocchi Americano
Absinthe Rinse

Instructions:
Combine ingredients in a stirring glass. Add ice and stir well to chill. Strain into a Martini glass. Peel a swath of lemon, squeeze the oils over the glass and garnish.

Stay tuned for our fall-inspired cocktail making its debut in September.
