# 1 Crush at Nicky’s Coal Fired in Nashville

 In Drink This Now

Nicky’s Coal Fired in Nashville is not your average pizza place. In fact, it’s far from it, with pizza made in a custom-built coal-burning oven (dubbed Enrico The Oven by Chef Tony Galzin), a variety of decadent pastas and a rotating antipasti menu.

But we are here for the cocktails, and the ones at Nicky’s Coal Fired are just as satisfying as Chef Galzin’s creations. Take the #1 Crush, a blend of gin, Campari, fresh honey, muddled strawberry and citrus, topped with sparkling rosé.

“The #1 Crush is kind of a cross between a Bramble and a French 75,” explains Beverage Director Tracy Jenkins. “The bitterness of the Campari balances perfectly with the sweetness of the honey. The citrus flavors add a little kick. It’s easy to make and is the perfectly crisp summer cocktail.”
