Saturday Cocktail: Sunny Weather
This week’s cocktail is one of the tastier drinks we’ve recommended, but there are strings attached.
The “Sunny Weather” cocktail was invented in New York City by mixologist Troy Sidle. He’s famous, mainly because he knows what the f**k he’s doing with a cocktail. You, on the other hand, shake like you have a degenerative illness the second you have to pour a precise amount of alcohol into a glass.
Our point is, rad drinks like the “Sunny Weather” are only going to be rad if you let a professional do it. You’d probably screw up getting the right ingredients, so you sure as hell won’t make it well. Here’s the recipe. If you’d like to try it out, go to a bar with a bartender who looks competent (usually the guy/girl wearing a tuxedo vest but no tuxedo), give him or her this recipe, sit back and enjoy getting sauced on the good stuff.
8oz chilled Ruffino Prosecco
1.5oz Grapefruit Juice
.5oz St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
.25 oz Campari
1. Pour Ruffino Prosecco over ice in a collins glass until half way full
2. Add Grapefruit juice, St-Germain and Campari
3. Top off with more Ruffino Prosecco as needed
4. Garnish with a grapefruit twist
