Bring on the Spring cocktails y’all! All of my favouite bars in Brooklyn have switched over to their new programs and I keep eyeing the Lavender bitters up on my fridge. (Keep in mind, most of my bar is up on top of the fridge!) I also keep eyeing the Dolin Blanc ’cause it’s just right for this time of year. (It lives in the fridge. All of the Vermouths and the Sherry live in the fridge.)
- 1 1/2 oz Plymouth Gin
- 1/2 oz Dolin Blanc
- 1/2 oz Honey Syrup
- 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
- 2 dashes BarKeep Lavender Bitters
- Garnish: Maraschino cherry
Combine ingredients over ice and shake. Double strain into coupe and garnish with Maraschino Cherry.
Remember when Bambi learns about the “birds and the bees” from the Old Owl? The very first thing I thought after taking a sip of this drink was the line, “Don’t you know? They’re twitterpated.”
Happy Spring Cocktails to you all!
