Review:

Dry sherry and bitter orange with underlying ripe grape sweetness, The Ribbon makes for a perfect aperitif cocktail.

History:

The Ribbon was created in 2017 at Swift in Soho, London, England, and was originally made with 40% alc./vol. Solerno blood orange liqueur. My previous interpretation of their recipe comprised:
20ml (2/3oz) Fino sherry
20ml (2/3oz) Cocchi Torino vermouth
10ml (1/3oz) Solerno
10ml Campari liqueur
Due to the demise of the availability of Solerno liqueur in the UK, in August 2022, at Swift Bar in Shoreditch, London, I discovered they had switched to Grand Marner so I also adapted my recipe.

Nutrition:

One serving of The Ribbon contains 144 calories.

Alcohol content:

  • 0.6 standard drinks
  • 7.51% alc./vol. (15.02° proof)
  • 8.3 grams of pure alcohol
