Cranberry Auberge
1 drink
Byrrh is sold in well-stocked liquor stores in the States. The Grand Quinquina is what is usually exported, which is said to be the original recipe and is more refined. The larger bottle (shown in the post, to the foreground of the Grand Quinquina) is the bottle that’s most widely available in France, sold in supermarkets.In place of the Byrrh, feel free to use another French red apéritif, such as Cap Corse rouge, Lillet rouge, Dubonnet, or sweet vermouth, such as Dolin. As a swap out for the eau-de-vie, try this cocktail with gin instead.
1 1/2 ounces Byrrh, or another French red apéritif wine, or sweet vermouth
3/4 ounce eau-de-vie, preferably kirsch
1 ounce cranberry juice
sparkling water or dry sparkling wine
orange twist and fresh cranberries, for garnish
1. In a short tumbler or rocks glass, mix together the Byrrh, eau-de-vie, and cranberry juice.
2. Add a handful of ice and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with an orange twist and a few fresh cranberries.
