Giddy Garden Spritz

May 17, 2020

This weekend’s Sunday Brunch cocktail is the Giddy Garden Spritz, a light and vivacious tipple created by @andreagle_liberati who is the head bartender at the luxurious Goring Hotel, famed for having one of London’s finest and largest private gardens.

Harking as he does from Lombardy, Andrea has given the classic Italian spritz a quintessentially British twist by masterfully mingling the country garden flavours of Broken Clock with English wine that has been infused with fresh tomatoes and parsley, so task your gardener with fetching these from the greenhouse. 97249864_4404008659613134_2706895882392784113_n.jpg It’s a delicately balanced yet curiously complex cocktail with vibrant acidity from the chardonnay and fake lime, leafy freshness from the parsley and lip-smacking umami flavours from the cherry tomatoes.

Garden party season may be somewhat postponed but you can still get giddy amongst the geraniums and let your hair down on the lawn in the absence of company with a glass of this cocktail in hand.


INGREDIENTS:

25 ml Broken Clock Vodka
25 ml Parsley & Cherry Tomato Infused Chardonnay
5 ml Sugar Syrup
10 ml Supasawa Fake Lime
Soda (from the fridge)

Garnish:
Cherry tomato and parsley sprig


METHOD:

Begin by infusing the chardonnay. Combine a good glug of the wine in a saucepan with a handful of chopped tomato and parsley. Immerse the saucepan in a bain-marie or larger pan of hot water and gently stir and simmer for 20 minutes at 80 degrees Celsius. Strain and chill down the liquid and pop it in a fridge for an hour.

Chill a champagne flute in the freezer until you are ready to build the cocktail. Take the glass, add the Broken Clock, fake lime, sugar syrup and infused chardonnay and top with cold soda. Add an ice cube should British summertime provide sweltering climes.

For an eye catching garnish, tie a slice of cherry tomato to the stem of the glass with a stalk of parsley.
