Why This Unique Cocktail Should Top Your Summer Must-Drink List
Move over frosé, there's a new cool-girl tipple in town this summer. Sydney's Bar Machiavelli has teamed up with fine French fragrance house Givenchy to create a duo of cocktails inspired by two of their most popular scents. For the ladies, there's The Goddess, which takes its flavour cues from the ingredients in Givenchy's Dahlia Divin Le Nectar ($172). A refreshing blend of sandalwood-infused vodka, liqueur de violettes, citrus, and chamomile and jasmine syrup, it's finished with Champagne foam and a gold leaf garnish. (And yes, it does look as fancy as it sounds—you'll want to 'gram it.) The second drink, while meant for the blokes, is perfect for anyone who loves darker liquors. (#EqualOpportunityImbibing.) Called the Gentlemen Only, it's a drinkable iteration of Givenchy's Gentlemen Only Absolute ($145). Imagine a sippable combo of Bourbon whiskey, red vermouth, and herbal Italian liqueurs finished with orange, saffron, anise, nutmeg and cinnamon. This one comes garnished with a smouldering cigar-like cinnamon stick for serious Mad Men vibes.
