Vote for More Sun
Timing isn't always perfect in the world of cocktails paired with events. Last minute for election day, I threw this cocktail together, but managed to lose or mis-tag the photo. However, I recalled it being refreshing and a bit of a rejection of winter drinking, and decided to make it again as a post-work cocktail. So here you have it, the Vote for More Sun, which would make a great afternoon sipper next to a pool or the lake.
2 oz vodka or gin
0.75 oz cocchi americano
0.75 oz lemon juice
0.5 oz rosemary syrup
3 dashes of Bittermen's Burlesque Bitters
Shake hard and strain into a chilled coupe. If you feel comfortable straining it from the shaker through a second small mesh strainer, double strained will really pretty up this drink. Express a lemon peel over the drink and garnish with the peel.
