Old Frenchie

Old Frenchie cocktail recipe with light rum, St. Germain, lemon juice, fresh mint, Angostura bitters and sparkling wine

The Old Frenchie is a clever twist on the classic Old Cuban, from bartender Sebastian Cañas at Boston’s Yvonne’s supper club.

Cañas envisioned the Old Frenchie as a true apéritif, a pre-meal palate cleanser, and it totally works. The thick layer of spicy Angostura bitters on top makes way for the fresh citrus and elderflower flavors that follow, while sparkling wine keeps everything light and bubbly.

Cañas prepares his with a pretty layer of fresh mint at the bottom. It doesn’t lend much to the drink, but it sure is pretty! If you do this, be sure to use crushed ice to keep the mint tamped down.

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice, and double-strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Top with sparkling wine, and enough bitters to completely soak the top of the drink. Garnish with a freshly-slapped spring of mint.
