Anyhoo, this week's cocktail gets us back in the swing of thing. Developed by A.J. Rathbun, it uses vodka, rose wine and maraschino liqueur. We don't have any vodka in the house, so I subbed in gin (shocker!) and everything came out great. The really nice thing about wine cocktails is that they don't give you a wallop like a straight-spirits cocktail. I am going to try making a few more of them, especially for weeknight sipping.
To see the story of this cocktail, check out A.J.'s blog post and his video on How2Heroes - linked below.
Combine in an iced mixing glass:
- 2 ounces rose wine (I used the dregs of a bottle of Kalmuck rose, wasn't too sweet)
- 1 ounce vodka (I used Plymouth gin)
- 1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
- dash of Peychaud's bitters
