Since its release, Nova 7 has become not only the perfect summer sipper but a wine for all occasions. Requested over and over by fans to explore its potential in a cocktail, we partnered with top, local mixologist, Jeffrey van Horne (Lot 6), to create an original cocktail that would protect the defining elements of Nova 7 that make it a category unto itself.
Ice, 1 dash of Lavender tincture or 1 sprig of Lavender (or Rosemary as substitute), 3/4 oz Grey Goose Vodka, 1/2 oz Cointreau, 1 oz Grapefruit juice, 3 oz chilled Nova 7.
Add ice to wine glass to chill.
Add lavendar to shaker tin or mixing glass. If using fresh lavendar or substituting with fresh rosemary, muddle lightly to bruise the herb and release essential oils.
Add remaining ingredients, except Nova 7, to tin or mixing glass. Fill with ice and seal.
Shake hard for 10 seconds, discard ice, strain mix into wine glass.
Top your wine glass with well-chilled Nova 7.
