The weather is heating up here in New York, and so is our kickstarter campaign to print the first issue of Sweets & Bitters Quarterly. Here is a refreshing drink to cool you off. Sip one while you watch our video (we did while making it). Recipe follows.
Sweets & Bitters Cocktail
- ½ oz fresh lime juice
- ½ oz Lillet rose
- ½ oz gin
- ½ oz Aperol
- scant ¼ oz maraschino liqueur
- dash orange bitters
- cava or other sparkling wine to top
Combine the ingredients (except cava) in a cocktail shaker. Fill it to the brim with very cold ice. Seal, and shake until nearly too cold to touch. Strain into a chilled 5 or 6 oz cocktail glass, and top with sparkling wine.
