My love of Calvados continues here at Home Bar Girl with a stirred Aperitif cocktail. We named it Copa de Oro after my girlfriend suggested that the drink resembled a California Poppy.
“Poppies, poppies will put you to sleep, sleeeeep, now they’ll sleep.” -The Wicked Witch of the West
ummmmmmmm. Perhaps we shouldn’t have named the drink after Poppies. This is not a sleepy drink, it’s a before dinner/start the night out kind of drink! Don’t listen to that Wicked Witch!
Copa de Oro
- 2 oz Calvados
- 1 oz Cocchi Americano
- 1/4 oz Cynar
- 2 Dashes Angostura
- Orange Peel
In tin, combine ingredients and stir over cracked ice. Strain into coupe. Express Orange Peel and garnish.
Cheers to you all!
