Aqua-Y-Essence, a Viognier Cocktail

From Brooklyn Bartender by Carey Jones (Black Dog & Leventhal, 2016)

Viognier + Lillet Blanc + gin + grapefruit = Aqua-Y-Essence. This stirred drink combines aromatic white wine with wine-based Lillet, contributing acidity without any fresh fruit juice.


Grapefruit peel
1½ ounce Dorothy Parker American gin
1 ounce dry Viognier (or a full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc)
¾ ounce Lillet Blanc
¼ ounce Combier Pamplemousse (grapefruit liqueur)
2 dashes grapefruit bitters


Twist a grapefruit peel into a coupe glass. Discard the peel and set the glass aside. Combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until well chilled and strain into the coupe glass.
