We’ve partnered up with Simon Pearce again, a heritage brand of glass-blown barware for our drink series. Please welcome back our friend Brice, who is an incredible craft bartender from The Spirit Run and one of Nashville’s best restaurants, Rolf and Daughters. Today he is making us another delicious drink. This one he calls “An Allied Response.” Brice said “So it turns out Spain played both sides in World War Two, so I tweaked the name a bit.” Here’s a break down so you can try one at home.
An Allied Response
You will need:
1 ounce Bols Genever (Dutch Gin)
1 ounce Dlin Blanc (French Vermouth)
.75 lemon juice
.5 simple syrup
2 dashes Fee Brothers Peach Bitters
1.5 ounces Cava
Shake all ingredients vigorously minus the Cava. Double strain into flute and pour your Cava. Add a twist of lemon. Throw two straws in and suck it down while staring into the eyes of someone you love.
Geo is the newest line from Simon Pearce, inspired by the 1920′s Bauhaus Movement that takes a new aesthetic approach to traditional glassware. The Geo Champagne flutes are a simple and modern addition to any tabletop setting and the perfect vessel for a great glass of bubbly.
Simon Pearce is one of America’s only remaining heritage glass brands. They are constantly developing new techniques by enhancing centuries-old practices and are training a new generation of master glassblowers in their workshops in Vermont and Maryland. The quality and uniqueness to each glass blown is unprecedented.
