Yes, this drink includes a bit of the stiffer stuff, but the main ingredient is Lillet Rosé, a refreshing, easy-drinking French aperitif wine. Overall, the effect is layered and complex, but carries only a modest punch.
- 1¾ ounces Lillet Rosé
- ¾ ounce London dry gin
- ⅓ ounce aquavit, like Krogstad
- 1 teaspoon Green Chartreuse
- 1 dash orange bitters
- 2 drops saline solution (mix 1 part salt to 3 parts water, and stir to dissolve)
- Castelvetrano olive (for garnish)
In mixing glass filled with ice, stir together all ingredients (except garnish). Strain into Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with olive speared on cocktail pick.
