During London fashion week back in September, Giorgio Armani created a special cocktail for guests to drink at his one night only fashion show. The cocktail was created in association with Grey Goose vodka and named Dolce Vita. From now until December 31, all of you lucky London-based Sugar readers will be able to head over to the cafe in the Armani store on Brompton Road and try a Dolce Vita (if anybody goes I want to hear about it).
It seems the recipe is highly classified information because I couldn't find it anywhere. Don't despair lovely Sugar readers. I have discovered a list of ingredients and with the help of my cocktail shaker and drink-tester girlfriends, I've created a version of the Dolce Vita cocktail (for all of us who won't be in London before December 31st) that you can make in the comfort of your very own kitchens. To make the Dolce Vita cocktail
1/4 cup fresh pomegranate juice
1/4 cup pink grapefruit juice
1 jigger (1 1/2 ounces) vodka
1 tablespoon Campari, or to taste
juice of fresh squeezed lime wedge
Garnish: wedge of pink grapefruit, rind and membranes removed
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake hard to form ice crystals. Strain into a martini glass and enjoy!
