2020 sure was a doozy, so we’re ushering in 2021 with two new refreshing drinks, courtesy of Chris Moore, Beverage Director at Dante. One is a mocktail because, ya know, pregnancy and/or Dry January vibes. The other, a cocktail because, well, LIFE.

Toasted Martini 

“The Toasted Martini was created as a way of enhancing the traditional tasting notes that are usually associated with vodka; grain comes in the form of toasted rye, spice through white peppercorns and vanilla (or creaminess) through the Dolin Blanc vermouth that we use as a modifier. The result is golden, rounded and has a really nice warmth and richness.” 

  • 2 oz Rye & White Pepper Grey Goose
  • 2 oz Dolin Blanc
  • ½ oz Panna
  • 2 dashes Grain Bitters

The Florist

“The challenge with non-alcoholic drinks is creating complexity and intrigue. This drink balances bitter elements with sweet ones, but is also aromatic and has a dry finish thanks to the tonic. Raspberry and rose are a beautiful combination, as long as the rose element is subtle, it becomes a great aroma.” 

  • 1/2 oz Fresh Raspberry Cordial
  • 2 dashes Rose Water
  • 1 dash Peach Bitters
  • San Pellegrino Tonica
