Virgin Sweetheart (Original Recipe)


This is a non-alcoholic cocktail that mimics the flavor of candy hearts. The basic format is the Clover Club but with lavender syrup and a float of DHOS Bittersweet aperitif  This recipe calls for two shakes and a gated pour with your Hawthorne strainer. 

To make the heart-shape float, scoop or flatten the shape with a spoon before floating the Bittersweet into the space. 

  • 1 1/2 oz. Spiritless Jalisco 55
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. grenadine
  • 2 tsp. lavender syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • DHOS Bittersweet aperitif float

Shake all ingredients except Bittersweet float in a shaker before adding ice. Then add the ice and shake again vigorously until the tin is ice cold. Strain with an open gate into a coupe glass. Carve a heart shape into the foam with a a spoon and float Bittersweet inside.
