Andean Dusk

Adapted from a recipe by Meaghan Dorman, Raines Law   Room, New   York City.

4 red grapes

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice

15 ml (.5 oz) simple syrup

30 ml (1 oz) La Diablada pisco

90 ml (3 oz) rosé champagne

Muddle the grapes in a mixing glass. Add ice and the remaining ingredients except champagne. Shake and strain into a chilled champagne flute. Top with champagne.

gaz sez:  Pisco!  I’m editing these recipes out of alpha-order and I’ve worked on over 70 of the 101 cocktails on this list before I came upon this, the first pisco-based drink I’ve seen thus far.  Thanks, Meaghan!  Nice and simple and well thought out, too.  (Picture by StarChefs)
