Balancing Act

Balancing Act

  • 2.0 oz. American gin (Bespoke)
  • 0.5 oz. elderflower liqueur (St. Germaine)
  • 0.5 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • dash of orange bitters
  • (1.0 oz. Prosecco)

Stir all but Prosecco over ice, then strain into coupe. Top with Prosecco.

I’m not a huge fan of any sparkling wine, but occasionally wind up with a bottle. I wanted to utilize it here with a gin a la a French 75, but without citrus had to improvise. The result I felt gave enough of each component without overpowering one another.

Hence the name. Not to put my thumb on the scale, but I like the way it leaned. Had the proper weight.

Ok I’ll stop.
