I’m no bartender, but sometimes I’m in the mood for an elevated, but easy cocktail. I want something more than just a glass of wine or a vodka and soda. A friend of mine launched a gin liquor called Pomp & Whimsy, which is perfect for those days when I want something special that doesn’t require much time or measuring. Their Pomp 75 fits that bill. That the liquor is made in Los Angeles, as well doesn’t hurt.
2 oz Pomp & Whimsy
2 oz Brut Champagne, chilled
Pour P&W over ice in a cocktail shaker and swirl until well chilled.
Strain into a coupe and top with champagne.
Garnish with a fanciful twist of citrus.
