American Rose

Nothing says American like brandy and peaches. American brandy, that is. And Gruet is an American sparkling wine inspired by French champagne, so it is perfect for the fizz in this cocktial.

America is of course the inventor of the cocktail, and combining French liqueurs and wines into strong spirits like brandy. The trick with this drink is to peel your peach half and dice it before muddling it in the shaker. A wide straw helps to suck up the pulp.
  • 1 1/2  oz. brandy
  • 1 tsp. grenadine 
  • 1/2 fresh peach peeled and mashed
  • 1/2 tsp. Pernod
  • Champagne or sparkling wine (Gruet used)
  • peach wedge
Combine all ingredients except peach wedge and champagne in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a wine glass and top with champagne. Garnish with the peach wedge.
