Mama Knows Best Cocktail | John Cusimano
1 ½ ounces brandy
¾ ounce orange liqueur
¼ ounce simple syrup*
2 dashes orange bitters
3 to 4 ounces Lambrusco
1 orange twist, for garnish
1 rosemary sprig, for garnish
*For the simple syrup, combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved, then let cool to room temperature. Syrup will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Makes about 1 ½ cups.
Add the brandy, orange liqueur, simple syrup and orange bitters to a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake to chill and strain into an ice-filled wine goblet. Top with Lambrusco and garnish with orange twist and rosemary sprig.
