Installment No. 2 in our Dating, Drinking, and Dining Series, presented with Chappy
Cocktails by Diego Sanchez
As any Chappy user knows, sometimes you’re looking for Mr. Right, and other times you’re looking for Mr. Right Now. But different dates require different cocktails, and for some guidance, we turned to NYC-based mixologist Diego Sanchez. The challenge as he sees it, is about what the goal of the drink is. Is it to impress someone for the long term, or the short term? Should it be a drink to sip and savor while discussing weekend plans, or should it be something you can shake up in a pinch, that’ll be a jolt of energy to keep the evening moving in the right direction?
Drawing on his extensive experience at some of New York City’s most popular and innovative bars, as well as plenty of home entertaining, he focuses here on easy-to-find ingredients that produce distinctive cocktails for both Chappy encounters.
So, are you thirsty for Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now?
The right cocktail can set the right mood. Make a date on Chappy and explore Diego's recipes below.
A Drink for Mr. Right
For Mr. Right, the Smoked & Sweet is a drink that involves lighting a cinnamon stick on fire and a warm-spiced sweet potato syrup—perfect for cuddling by the fire.
