5 fresh Kumquats (chopped)
1½ fl oz Grappa
1¼ fl oz St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¼ fl oz Sugar syrup (2 sugar to 1 water)
¼ fl oz Merlot red wine
How to make:
MUDDLE kumquats in base of shaker. Add next three ingredients, shake and fine strain into a chilled glass. FLOAT wine.
Garnish: Orange zest twist (discarded) & white grapes
Comment: Looks great and, with the citrus freshness of kumquat combined with the oily character of grappa, it also tastes great.
