The Noce Royale is a nutty, rich sparkling cocktail from Lindsay Nader at PDT. “Noce” is Italian for “walnut,” and despite having a relatively small measure of walnut liqueur, the flavor of it – carried aloft by the effervescence of the sparkling wine – is the dominant note, supported by subtle berry, spice, and herbal notes.
Stir everything but the sparkling wine with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and top with the sparkling wine.
