Absolut Crafted A Custom Cocktail To Celebrate NYLON's 18th Anniversary

    And it's pink!

    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. 

    BUBBLE BOMB

    Ingredients:
    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)

    Method:
    Add vodka, simple syrup, and gelato to a wine glass. Top with sparkling wine and strawberries.
