Big Spender Cocktail
Here’s an adaptation of a bubbly celebration drink from American mixology pioneer Dale DeGroff. It combines añejo tequila, blood orange juice, aromatic Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur, and a top-up with sparkling rosé. What to buy: Blood orange juice is available at well-stocked grocery stores and online. Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur, from Martinique, is made up of a blend of rums flavored with spices and orange. We featured this recipe in our Drinks Around the World for New Year’s Eve story.
