The Monferrato by Leo Robitschek is a rose coloured sparkling cocktail that tastes gorgeous. It’s those few drops of Peychaud that colours the cocktail so nicely, also contributing with a lot of flavour.
This is actually one of the cocktails we had on our New Years Eve celebrations. The cocktails are partially shot outside, in the dark and cold just hours before 2017 turned into 2018. It was the perfect festive cocktail for such an occasion.
3 dashes Angostura bitters
3 dashes Peychaud bitters
0,5 oz Combier triple sec (we used Cointreau)
1 oz Cocchi Americano
2 oz Champagne
Stir all ingredients but the Champagne with fresh ice. Strain into flutes and top up with Champagne.
