A Scented Stretch

A Scented Stretch cocktail with white rum, elderflower liqueur, white wine, lemon juice, honey syrup, and sparkling water

A Scented Stretch is among the finest of the new wave of lower-proof cocktails invented by Greg Best at the Ticonderoga Club in Atlanta. It’s perfectly balanced, and refreshing enough to day-drink without ending up blotto by sundown.

Best specifies that the white wine should be crisp, and the recipe as printed on the Punch website calls for a Grüner Veltliner or Sancerre.

Ingredients

Instructions

Build in the order given, in a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Stir gently to combine and top with more crushed ice if needed. Garnish with a pinch of sea salt, a lemon wheel, a sprig of Thai basil – or all of the above!

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
