Spring Fever

Spring Fever sparkling cocktail with sparkling rosé wine, Hendricks gin, elderflower syrup, lemon juice, strawberries, and rhubarb bitters

Spring Fever is a gorgeous bouquet of beautiful botanical flavors from Jamie Steinberg, beverage director at NYC’s Motel Morris. It’s a lovely seasonal sipper that stands up to any number of swaps and substitutions.

Botanical gin like Hendrick’s is gorgeous here, but a London Dry or Plymouth gin is crisp and bright. Elderflower syrup brings a delicate sweetness, but elderflower liqueur works just as well for a dryer character. And while we typically recommend a dry sparkling rosé in a cocktail, anything goes here – a hyper-sweet American sparkling pink Moscato fares just as well as the more acidic Sassetti vino spumante rosé that Steinberg uses.

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour the sparkling wine into a wine glass or goblet. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice, and pour unstrained into the prepared glass. Top with more ice if needed, and garnish with a lemon wheel.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
