Grapefruit Sbagliato

Grapefruit Sbagliato

The Negroni Sbagliato is a lighter, brighter version of the classic Negroni. Typically comprised of sweet vermouth, Campari, and sparkling wine, we swapped out the wine for our Sparkling Grapefruit Soda. The resulting cocktail is pleasantly bittersweet and with a lower ABV, you don't have to worry about tapping out too early in the evening.

Grapefruit Sbagliato Recipe:

2 oz sweet vermouth

2 oz Campari

2 oz Top Note Sparkling Grapefruit Soda

Garnish: fresh grapefruit slice

Stir ingredients together in an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish. 

Spanish G&T

Spanish G&T

The Spanish G&T is all about the garnish. The possibilities are endless, but the idea is to choose garnishes that complement both the gin and the tonic.

London Dry and other juniper-forward gin's pair well with Classic Tonic, fresh herbs, citrus, and juniper berries. American and other floral-forward gins take well to Indian Tonic and fresh seasonal fruits and edible flowers.

Spanish G&T Recipe:

2 oz gin

4 oz tonic*

2 dashes bitters

Squeeze lemon

Cucumber slice (3)

Juniper Berry  (3) and or Red Peppercorn (3)

Lemon peel

Add Gin, Bitters, Cucumber, Juniper, Lemon Juice, and Peppercorns to a balloon glass. Add ice and stir. Slowly pour in tonic on side of glass. Carefully lift and stir. Spritz with the lemon peel and drop peel in glass.

Serve with or without a straw.
