Sanctuary

AW2017

When you think about French cocktails, the first things that come to mind are likely the Sidecar, or the French 75. But what about the Sanctuary? A heady mix of aperitifs, this vintage cocktail is essentially the embodiment of the French aesthetic. Check out @cocktaildetour's post for the recipe!

The Sanctuary is very French cocktail, using only French ingredients. It's primarily based around Dubonnet which is an aperitif wine, but then two orange based spirits are added to create this cocktail. Amer Picon is another aperitif with very noticeable aromas and flavors of orange. It's an exquisite product, widely available in Europe (but potentially harder to find in America). And finally there's Cointreau to add even more orange notes, but also some sweetness and a subtle bitterness.⠀ ⠀ 1,5 oz Dubonnet Rouge⠀ 0,75 oz Amer Picon⠀ 0,75 oz Cointreau⠀ Stir all ingredients with ice, strain and pour⠀ ⠀ Here served in irregular glassware with an added paper rose and some green leaves, we wanted to create a Paris feel around this serving. And it somehow worked . . . take a sip on this one . . . close your yeux . . . écouter . . . et voilà vous êtes en France. Santé! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #drinks #cocktails #cocktail #happyhour #booze #mixology #칵테일 #коктейль #bartending #craftcocktails #coctel #cocktailhour #cocteles #drinkstagram #cocktailtime #カクテル #Coquetel #imbibe #craftcocktail #homebar #libations #cocktailoftheday #cocktailart #cocktailculture #instacocktails #dubonnet #amerpicon #cointreau #france
