Doc Daneeka Royale

Doc Daneeka Royale sparkling cocktail, with gin, lemon juice, maple syrup, grapefruit bitters, and sparkling wine

Doc Daneeka Royale is a mouth-watering sparkler featuring gin, citrus, and maple. It’s a riff on the classic French 75 from Alex Day at Death & Co. The grapefruit bitters are a standout star here, playing up the lemon and the maple and lending the drink an almost candy-like quality while still keeping the sweetness in check and the gin forward.

Day uses Champagne for his recipe. You can use any sparkling white you like, or even a rosé, as long as it’s on the dry side.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass and top with the sparkling wine. Squeeze a piece of grapefruit or lemon peel over the drink and then discard.
