Love Letter Cocktail

Certainly, a perfect beverage will be needed this weekend when you’re entertaining your significant other. Instead of – or in addition to - tracking down a bottle of wine or affordable champagne, why not try your hand at an artisan cocktail? All the rage here in New York, they can be shockingly easy to create. Try this new combination from Adam Wilson of Beretta in San Francisco. Shake 1 ounce Campari with 1 ounce fresh lime juice, three quarters of an ounce Cointreau, a quarter ounce Maple Syrup, a quarter ounce grenadine, and 3 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters. Add 1 ounce soda, then pour over ice in a highball. This bright-red and flirtatiously fizzy drink should be garnished with a delicate swirl of lime zest, for elegant sipping that is sure to get anyone’s heart fluttering.
