One cocktails
At Lucques, Barman Christiaan Rollich, who came up with the drink, uses Dolin dry French vermouth. You could swap out another brand of vermouth. Prosecco is a lively, sparkling wine from Italy. It’s a less-expensive alternative to Champagne and is an excellent mixer for cocktails, such as this one.
1 1/2 ounces dry vermouth preferably Dolin
1 ounce Lillet blanc (white)
1 ounce orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1 ounce Prosecco
lemon wheel and orange wheel
1. Fill a small pitcher halfway with ice. Add vermouth, Lillet, and orange liqueur, and stir briskly until well-chilled. Strain into a stemmed wine glass.
2. Add a generous handful of fresh ice and top with a pour of Prosecco. Drop in a lemon and orange wheel, and serve.
