In this homage to Italy, Vincenzo Marianella merges two of the country’s most beloved beverages: grappa and Lambrusco.
2 oz. grappa
1 oz. Lambrusco syrup
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. egg white (pasteurized, if you like)
Applications: shaker, strainer
Garnish: Angostura bitter drops
Shake all the ingredients together with ice in a shaker tin. Pressure into a cocktail glass and garnish.
Lambrusco Syrup: Combine 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of Lambrusco wine. Deliver to a boil and reduce warmth to a simmer. When the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is clear, remove from the heat and allow neat. Keep in the refrigerator when not in use.
