Citrus 75

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

Kathy Casey likes making her own Limoncello, the sweet Italian lemon liqueur, for this drink. (You can watch a video at liquidkitchen.tv.) Pallini Limoncello, which is widely available, also works well here.

  1. 1/2 clementine
  2. Ice
  3. 1 1/2 ounces gin
  4. 1/2 ounce Limoncello
  5. 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  6. 1/2 ounce honey syrup (1/2 tablespoon honey mixed with 1/2 tablespoon warm water)
  7. 1 ounce chilled brut Champagne
  8. 1 lemon twist, for garnish
  9. 1 orange wheel, for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the clementine. Add ice and the gin, Limoncello, lemon juice and honey syrup and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe, top with the Champagne and garnish with the lemon twist and orange wheel.
