This simple spritz is a perfect balance of crisp cava, spicy ginger, and rich sherry all brightened up with a few dashes of grapefruit bitters.
1.5 oz Fino sherry
1 oz Ginger syrup*
3 oz Cava
4-6 dashes The Bitter Housewife Grapefruit Bitters
Add sherry, syrup, and bitters to a wine glass, stir to mix. Fill glass with ice, top with Cava, and give a gentle stir to mix. Garnish with a grapefruit slice.
* If you'd like to make your own ginger syrup, simmer 1/2 cup of sliced fresh ginger, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium low heat for 10-15 minutes. Make sure all sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool before using. The syrup will keep in the fridge for about a month.
