Meant to evoke the lagoon waters surrounding Venice, the Sensa Spritz is cool, dry and mildly bitter. A base of Salers (a French aperitif…if not available at your liquor store, ask the manager to special order,) and dry Vermouth bound together with the cooling herbaceousness of cucumber.
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 ounce of simple syrup
- 2 cucumber slices
- 3/4 ounces of Salers
- 3/4 ounce of Dolin dry vermouth
- 1/2 ounce of fresh lime juice
- soda water
- Prep Time: 5m
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the sea salt and simple syrup with the cucumber slices. Add the Salers, vermouth and lime juice. Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a Collins glass over ice, top with soda water and add the garnish.
