Throughout April, Hotel Sorella Citycentre invites guests to toast its food and beverage program’s focus on locally sourced ingredients with a special menu of Sustainable Sips cocktail offerings, which utilize gins, vodkas and whiskeys that have no additives and integrate organic botanicals such as thyme, rosemary, lavender and sage. Stop into the Monnalisa to sample each of the four selections (California Crush, Tea Garden Cooler, Whiskey Smash, or the Spanish Rose) or treat yourself to this one at home with the following recipe:
1 ½ oz. Cap Rock gin
¾ oz. Licor 43
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. rosemary syrup (or muddled rosemary)
½ oz. pomegranate juice
Add spirits, lemon juice and rosemary syrup in a shaker. Shake and strain over ice in a wine glass. Top with pom juice. Garnish with a rosemary sprig or fruit.
