Created by Pamela Wiznitzer of New York City bar Seamstress, this float starts with a Negroni, then adds the nostalgia one ingredient at a time—starting with ice cream and vanilla soda, and ending with a garnish of sprinkles. The Negroni, it turns out, is the perfect base for an ice cream drink, melding botanically-driven gin, bitter-but-sweet Campari and herbal vermouth with vanilla ice cream’s warming baking spice notes. Plus, we can all agree that sprinkles make everything better—including cocktail hour.
