Honey, vinegar and bubbles come together in this pretty pink cocktail that is in season all year long. We’ve never been to a garden party but imagine if we ever did, we would insist that our Pink Pacific Rose Spritz be served.
Bärenjäger is a German honey liquor that is available in many American liquor stores. We love it here for the way its’ floral notes play with our vinegar. And because using umlauts makes us think of that 99 balloon song which seems really appropriate for a pretty pink drink with an edge.
Feel free to make this cocktail individually or scale it up to a pitcher for a crowd (just not too far in advance or you will lose the effervescence).
