All the Single Bettys!
Gather your girls for a toast to being fabulously un-attached very Sex and the City, no?
-Francine Segan, Betty Food Editor
Besides discovering great clothes when I was in Florence during Fashion Week last month, I also discovered Passion for Fashion, must-taste cocktail specially created for the occasion by and served at the chic Hotel Savoy’s L’Incontro Bar.
Since it happens now to be the eve of Fashion Week in New York, and Valentine’s Weekend, too, it’s the perfect time to pass along the recipe so you can host your own fashionable get-together this weekend.
One of the key ingredients here is Aperol, a delicious orange-and-spice-flavored spirit that is (finally!) available here in the States. This is a wonderfully fragrant drink.
L’Incontro’s Passion for Fashion Cocktail
2 ounces Absolut APeach Vodka
2 ounces apple juice
1 ounce Aperol
1 ounce fresh lime juice
Raspberries, gooseberries (optional)
Combine the vodka, juices, Aperol sec, and crushed ice in a shaker and mix. Strain into two chilled martini glasses. Garnish with raspberries and gooseberries, if you like.
