Keep all of the ingredients (except the bitters) chilled before use. For a garnish, Hadley Douglas recommends a simple lemon twist. Serves one.

1/2 oz. Lillet Rose

1/2 oz. Damrak gin 

2 oz. moscato (Hadley recommends Innocent Bystander, available at the Urban Grape) 

4 dashes rhubarb bitters (such as Fee Brothers, available at the Boston Shaker)

Splash of lemon juice

Pour moscato into a champagne flute, and top with the Lillet and gin. Finish with the bitters, lemon juice, and a lemon twist.
