Fireside 75

Fireside 75

Winter in the northern hemisphere is a season for celebrations, and there are few drinks we lean on more heavily in this time than the Fireside 75 from Brad Goocher at Cane & Table in New Orleans.

The Fireside 75 splits the spirit base between classic gin and warming brandy, and spices it all up by substituting cinnamon syrup for the original simple. Since it’s a fairly sweet base, we try to choose a very dry sparkling wine to top it with, but it’s always good with whatever we’ve had on hand.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Top with the sparkling white wine and garnish with a lemon twist.
