April 2, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
Happy New Year (Charles Schumann, 1981)
1/4 oz. brandy
3/4 oz. ruby port
3/4 oz. orange juice
Shake first three ingredients over ice in a shaker. Strain into a Champagne flute and fill with Champagne.
Christian Brothers brandy, Dow’s ruby port, and Gruet sparkling white wine. At first, all I was getting flavor wise was the wine, then a little bit of the brandy and port (same flavor, just a little sweeter). Even by the end of the glass the wine was dominating. Photo doesn’t do the color any justice, unfortunately. It was gorgeous dark rosy red.
On egin! (Basque)
