With summer swiftly approaching, every cocktail connoisseur knows that outdoor sipping is a must. But, when sipping at an outdoor café or rooftop bar, you should seek out the most refreshing beverages that will be sure to keep you buzzed and bubbly. Someone who perfectly emulates those character traits is Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon. Rippon has teamed up with Moët Ice Imperial to craft an effervescent cocktail that for sure warrants a perfect 10. Inspired by the South of France, Rippon flawlessly matched St-Germain French elderflower liqueur with Moët Ice Impérial and a touch of vodka (because, why not?) to create the beverage of our summer dreams. Finishing it off with a hint of lavender, Rippon has reimagined the essence of the South of France in a glass.
