It finally – finally! – feels like Spring in New York City, and we’re excited to bring together NYC foodspotters tomorrow night for our first ever Foodspotting Happy Hour at Ai Fiori, the latest restaurant and bar from one of our favorite chefs, Michael White.
We’ll be celebrating the good weather and ringing in Ai Fiori’s Spring Specialties with exclusive drink specials just for you guys and some yummy bites to try, too.
Last Friday we asked foodspotters on Facebook to name their favorite Spring drinks. In response to the online calls for gin, mint, light, citrus, cucumber, “sparkling” and
“refreshing,” Ai Fiori’s cocktail master Eben Freeman created a special Foodspotting Spring cocktail called the Campari Cup, which will be available tomorrow at our event! You have to admit it looks pretty awesome.
For our friends who want to recreate the Campari Cup at home, here are the secret ingredients:
Garnish: mint sprig and cucumber peel
½ oz. honey syrup
¾ oz. lemon juice
1 oz. Hendrick’s gin
1 oz. Campari
Top up club soda
Method: Combine honey syrup, lemon juice, and gin in a cobbler shaker. Shake and strain into glass. Fill glass with crushed ice, swizzle briefly and top with more ice. Pour chilled Campari over drink and top with club soda. Top again with crushed ice, place straws and garnish.
Looking forward to seeing you guys tomorrow! Don’t forget to RSVP.
