When I discovered this cocktail recipe in Brad Thomas Parsons´ book “Bitters” I knew immediately that one day I will try this recipe. I was curious how a drink with gin, Strega and sparkling wine would taste like? Now I can say it is a sensational aromatic summer drink!
1 ounce gin
3/4 ounce Strega
1/4 ounce simple syrup
2 dashes orange bitters
Chilled champagner or sparkling wine (this first time I took sparkling wine)
Combine the ingredients except the sparkling wine, stir in a mixing glass filled with ice, and strain into a highball glass filled with some ice. Top off with the sparkling wine. Garnish with an orange zest.
