Chef Michael Scelfo shares his secrets for the ultimate al fresco dinner party.
“THE WANDERING POET” (FROM THE URBAN GRAPE’S TJ AND HADLEY DOUGLAS)
Keep all of the ingredients (except the bitters) chilled before use. For a garnish, Hadley Douglas recommends a simple lemon twist. Serves one.
1 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.
