A Scented Stretch
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.
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!
