We worked with Portland mixologist, Douglas Derrick, to create a Rosé libation to help make summer last forever.
Broad City Punch
2.5 oz Underwood Rosé
1.5 oz white grapefruit juice
1 oz Aria Gin (or London Dry Style)
1 oz chamomile syrup
2 dashes cherry-anise bitters (Peychaud’s or Creole)
Build all ingredients in a mixing tin. Shake, strain into 10 oz glass filled with ice. Garnish with a long stem mint sprig.
For the chamomile syrup, brew 2 chamomile tea bags in 8 oz hot water. Steep for 5 minutes, filter out tea and sir in 1 cup bakers sugar while hot. Let cool and refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.
About Douglas Derrick
