Amsterdam is my favorite place in the world. The canals, the houseboats, the architecture, the history, the people riding bicycles, the way it feels like a global village. And of course, Tess Posthumus and Door 74 (see The Making of a Mixologist, the BLOG entry for March 2, 2016). In keeping with my love affair with all things Amsterdam, I've created a cocktail in its honor...
1½ parts Cîroc Redberry Vodka
½ part Sauvignon Blanc wine
½ part Chambord
½ part Triple Sec
¼ part fresh-squeezed Lime juice
liberal dash of Hella Bitters citrus bitters.
Shake everything over ice, then pour into a chilled
Garnish with a lime wedge.
"Amsterdam", the cocktail.
Amsterdam, the place. Ahh!
