The following feature appears in the April 2017 issue of NYLON.
A go-to drink is a good thing to have: Carrie Bradshaw indulged in cosmopolitans, Ernest Hemingway enjoyed mojitos, and James Bond could never turn down a vodka martini (that’s shaken, not stirred).
So, to celebrate NYLON’s 18th anniversary, Absolut crafted a custom signature cocktail for us. Using our favorite pink hue (plus the NYLON vibe) for inspiration, Pernod Ricard national mixologist Kevin Denton concocted the Bubble Bomb, a fun, fizzy beverage with a generous scoop of strawberry gelato.
Possibly the coolest part is how the drink’s flavor changes over time as the ice cream melts. Because, after all, a NYLON girl is always evolving.
1 1/2 parts Absolut Lime Vodka
1/2 part simple syrup
1 scoop strawberry gelato
3 parts Mumm Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine
strawberry slices (to garnish)
Add vodka, simple syrup, and gelato to a wine glass. Top with sparkling wine and strawberries.
