Pins & Needles
The Pins & Needles is a brilliant concoction from Alex Day at Honeycut in Los Angeles. It’s big and grassy and tart and just-sweet-enough, and terrifically refreshing.
Day calls for La Favorite Coeur de Canne, a rhum agricole blanc. He also calls for Lillet Blanc, a rosé wine apéritif – Cocchi Rosa will be just as lovely in a pinch. For the pineapple syrup, we haven’t found any that we love so much as the one by Small Hand Foods – which you can order online in some regions.
Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled wine glass or short glass. Top with sparking water and garnish with a lime wheel and a pineapple wedge.
