Cocktails & Conversation is a series of dialogues about design that joins an architect with a critic, journalist, curator, or architectural historian to discuss current architecture design issues. For this program, James Timberlake, FAIA, and Stephen Kieran, FAIA, of KieranTimberlake will sit down with author and architecture critic Sarah Williams Goldhagen over a custom-crafted cocktail as they discuss their firm and work.

Cocktail: Tomasso Collins
1.5 oz. gin
1 oz. fresh lemon juice (or as I make it here, .5 oz. lemon and .5 oz. lime juice)
.75 oz. 1:1 ratio simple syrup (1 cup sugar to 1 cup hot water, stirred to dissolve)
.75 oz. Campari
fizzy water
an orange zest or slice for garnish

In a tall highball glass juice build first three ingredients. Add ice to roughly 2/3 of the glass’s height and top with seltzer water. Stir gently and briefly to incorporate all ingredients. Float Campari atop and garnish with either a twist or a slice of orange, as you prefer.
