Review:

Originally topped with lambrusco, I've opted for prosecco but some, like me, may prefer champagne or other brut sparkling wine. Whichever you choose, the result is cognac-laced bittersweet herbal and lightly vivacious aperitivo or digestivo.

History:

Adapted from a recipe that originated in 2008 at Milk & Honey in New York City, USA.
