Here at SMP, we’re no strangers to a perfectly crafted cocktail. But perhaps equally important as the yummy concoction is the glassware it’s served in. I’m talking about those gorgeous pieces sitting on your registry, waiting to be put to use. So in honor of Macy’s Registry to Reality, we whipped up 4 signature cocktails to complement each Macy’s glass we love with easy peasy recipes so you can do the same!

ingredients
For the Cocktail:
6 oz Cointreau
2 oz lime juice
4 oz ginger syrup*
12 oz fresh grapefruit juice
1 bottle ginger ale
1 grapefruit

For the Ginger Syrup:
4 oz fresh ginger
1 cup sugar
2 cups water

instructions

*To make the ginger syrup: Slice the ginger into thin slices, then chop those slices into smaller chunks. In a small saucepan, heat the ginger, water, and sugar. Stir until mixed, bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 45 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer. Syrup can keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Mix all ingredients except ginger ale in a cocktail shaker. Fill 4 highball glasses with ice, then pour mixture evenly in each glass. Top each glass with ginger ale and garnish with a slice of grapefruit.
