Ingredients

  • WINE SYRUP

  • ·
    1 cup sauvignon blanc or other dry white wine
  • ·
    1 cup sugar
  • ·
    1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • ·
    2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • ·
    3 strips grapefruit peel (a little attached pith is fine)
  • THE COCKTAIL

  • ·
    1 ½ ounces gin
  • ·
    1 ounce wine syrup
  • ·
    1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • ·
    1/2 ounce grapefruit juice

How to Make French 52 Cocktail

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the wine syrup: Add all ingredients for the syrup to a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat, stirring often, until sugar is dissolved and syrup starts to bubble a little (about 5 minutes). Allow to cool to room temperature. Strain and refrigerate. (I'm guessing this stuff will keep a few weeks in the fridge.)
  2. Add all ingredients except the Prosecco and the garnish to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until very cold. Fine strain into a chilled flute or coupe. Top with Prosecco, garnish with the twist, and serve.
