Sweetly spiced and with a dreamy pink hue, this drink is available at Uva Wine & Cocktail Bar. Called In Between Cupid, the bright, citrusy cocktail features gin, Campari, lemon juice, homemade spiced pineapple syrup, and Bittered Sling Denman bitters, which add complexity and an aromatic kick.
In Between Cupid
1.5 ounces Tanqueray
0.5 ounces Campari
0.5 ounces spiced pineapple syrup (a blend of vanilla, cinnamon, green cardamom, star anise, peppercorns, pineapple juice, and sugar)
0.5 ounces lemon juice
Two dashes Bittered Sling Denman bitters
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail tin.
Add ice and shake vigorously for seven to 10 seconds.
Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
If feeling adventurous, cut a little heart out of the lemon peel and stick to the end of a toothpick for additional romance.
