Anything that pairs a few of my favorite things together is bound to not only get my attention but also have my love. The Upward Float, created by Created by Pamela Wiznitzer of the uber cool cocktail bar Seamstress here in New York City, has done both and quite successfully if I do say so myself. Wiznitzer paired Campari, Gin, Cocchi Rosa, Vanilla soda and Vanilla ice cream together for a fun boozy sweet treat. This is one to break out for a poolside soiree or if you aren’t that fortunate whip them up for this week’s book club get together. Don’t worry your neighborhood wine store will understand that you need a break from your 10 bottles of rose this week.

The goods:

  • ¾ oz. Campari
  • ¾ oz. Bulldog Gin
  • 1 oz. Cocchi Rosa
  • 3-4 oz. Dry Vanilla Soda
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Ice Cream

Create it:

  • Build in the glass and top with ice cream and dry vanilla soda.
  • Garnish with Campari syrup, orange peel and sprinkles if desired.

Side note: If you are fortunate enough to reside in NYC you must hit up Seamstress, located on the Upper Eastside, it’s a delightful break from the craft beer joints and fratty hangouts up there. What I love most is that you can order from a variety of cocktail concoctions {What they like to call Tailor Made … need I say more?} These pitchers are perfect for small or larger parties as they serve two to six people and trust me, they are quite impressive.
