No cocktail party is complete without a signature cocktail, but that doesn't mean you need to whip up some crazy concoction with 14 different ingredients that you'll never use again. Keep it simple, but still impressive with a four-ingredient cocktail that features one unique flavor that makes your guests think you're a master mixologist. Due to its refreshing effervescence and hint of sweetness and spice, we're declaring this Ginger and Juice the official cocktail of August (aka tomorrow!).
1/2 ounce peeled, sliced fresh ginger
4 ounces pineapple juice
In a cocktail shaker, crush ginger with a muddler or wooden spoon. Fill the shaker with ice and add pineapple juice; shake well. Strain into 2 flutes and top with champagne.
