Last night Lori and I gathered with some friends to celebrate our engagement at The Passenger. Little did we know, but some of our friends had commissioned a cocktail for the celebration. Bartender Alex Bookless came up with a great drink, inspired in part by the cognac diamond in Lori’s engagement ring, called the Matt & Lori.
Matt & Lori
0.75 oz Calvados
0.5 oz Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
0.25 oz lemon juice
Stir calvados, Domaine de Canton, lemon juice and grenadine over ice. Pour into a champagne glass or coupe. Top with sparkling wine and a cherry. Enjoy!
This was a really delightful cocktail and not just because it had been made especially for us. It was rich and flavorful, light and tart. Thanks to Alex for making it for us and all our friends who came to enjoy it with us!
