No Learning, No Hugging 

Courtesy Camille Razo, head bartender, The Patterson House, Nashville

At The Patterson House, this Sloe Gin Fizz-like drink comes with a small carafe of Gruet, a sparkling wine made in New Mexico. The name is a reference to the television show Seinfeld, as the bar team struggled to find a name for this drink.


2 strawberries
1 ounce grapefruit juice
¾ ounce Hayman’s Sloe Gin
¾ ounce Byrrh
¾ ounce gin, preferably Plymouth
¾ ounce lemon juice
¾ ounce simple syrup
5 drops orange blossom water
sparkling wine (about 3 ounces)


In bottom of cocktail shaker, crush 1 strawberry with muddler or back of spoon. Add remaining ingredients (except sparkling wine) and ice. Shake well, and strain into Collins glass over fresh ice cubes. Top with sparkling wine to taste. Garnish with remaining strawberry.
