September 15, 2016 – The Republic Steakhouse
1 1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
Pour orange juice into a Champagne flute. Carefully fill glass with Champagne.
Gruet sparkling white wine. The all-time classic brunch tipple. Good orange juice tonight, so my drink was nicely sweet and a little tart, which really helped cut the mustyness of the wine. As an experiment, Ryan added some Rababaro Zucca, a delicious rhubarb amaro from Italy, which gave the drink a lovely peach color and slight acidic bitterness that worked really well.
