The Parlor Pizzeria’s romantic cocktail marries whiskey with wine.
Wine has long been associated with romance – and not just because a bottle with dinner makes post-date “dessert” more likely. Ancient Romans worshipped Bacchus as the god of vino and fertility, forever tying the vine to victories of the heart. Parlor mixologist Libby Longlott created Sangre de Vino (“blood wine”) as a symbolic union of the masculine and feminine. “The grape is subtly highlighted three ways,” Longlott says. “There’s an Italian Amaro base, wine syrup, and the whiskey is aged in Papillon casks.”
The love potion begins with 1 1⁄2 oz. Amaro CioCiaro and 1 oz. 88-proof Slaughter House whiskey. Add 1 oz. fresh lemon juice and ¼ oz. Cabernet simple syrup and shake well. Serve on the rocks – over a heart-shaped cube if you’re feeling extra sappy – garnished with lemon twist and grated nutmeg.
