Justin's Cocktail Recipe

Summer took way too long to get here, but now that we can enjoy a drink outside, it’s time for the Sparkling Summer Smash featuring Mionetto!

Combine ½ of a lime, ⅓ of a green apple and a few leaves of fresh basil in a shaker. Add 0.5 oz of chamomile simple syrup and gently muddle. Add 0.75 oz cognac,1.5 oz Pimms, and 3-4 dashes of citrus bitters and whip shake with crushed or pebble ice. Pour the contents into a large rocks glass or small Collins glass, and top with 1-3 oz of Mionetto. Stir lightly to combine, and top with crushed or pebble ice. Garnish with an apple slice, and orange zest and basil.

What inspired the drink?

My inspiration was building on the notes of apple found in Mionetto with the summer spices of Pimms, combined in a new take on the classic Smash style of cocktail. The muddled apples, limes and basil combined with the chamomile syrup add a fruity base, elevated by the effervescence from Mionetto.
