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!
2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cocchi Americano
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.
