Want to know how to drink French fluently? Of course you do. Starting with a ‘Grievous Angel’ cocktail taken from this exquisite guide that’s sure to stimulate joie de vivre…
“On a sunny patio, bourbon needs embellishment by way of citrus, bright fruit or perhaps a floral element”, explains Big Star’s Laurent Lebec. The bourbon-based Grievous Angel softens the hit of whiskey with a touch of St-Germain’s floral sweetness alongside strawberry syrup, and kicks everything up with the addition of bitters and citrus…
1 1/2 ounces 90-proof bourbon
1/2 ounce St-Germain
3/4 ounce Strawberry Syrup
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1 dash Peychaud’s bitters
A few dashes of Angostura bitters
Lemon peel, sliced strawberry.
Shake all of the ingredients with ice. Double strain into a rocks glass. Express the lemon peel over the drink and discard. Garnish with the sliced strawberry.
