This little number is an ode to three things much loved by the Spirit People crew. In no particular order those three things are the return of Spring as a prelude to those long summer nights, brandy week, and the classic margarita.
Aptly named Spring Sprung, this margarita twist takes the uniqueness of the Charles Oates Apple Spirit in all its dry, crunchy and crisp glory and uses it as a placeholder for what would normally be tequila. The result will knock your socks off. It is a clever drink with floral notes balanced by the depth and intensity of the Romano Levi Grappa which picks up the bright and floral notes of the combined ingredients and makes them sing. The Marionette Curacao is the final element that is perfectly aligned in its citrusy, dry, floral sweetness. The simplicity that results in the combination of these three epic products is really surprising and the best part???? It’s a no fuss easy cocktail to make at home.
15ml Marionette Curacao
15ml Lime Juice
7.5ml Romano Levi Moscato Grappa
…then shake briskly as you would any simple sour. Serve with no garnish.
