Last weekend you may have been celebrating the red, white, and blue, but this Sunday you’ll be celebrating the other red, white, and blue—for Bastille Day of course! Francofiles, we have the perfect cocktail created by Colin Peter Field of the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz Paris called Serendipity. In addition to grabbing this drink in Paris when the hotel reopens in 2014, the Serendipity will also be featured by Colin Field at the Tales of the Cocktail festival in New Orleans, July 17–21, 2013. If you want to create this wonderful drink for your friends, we have the recipe below.
1 stem of fresh mint
1 teaspoon of white sugar
1 oz. Calvados, a young one
2 oz. clear apple juice
Mix all ingredients except for Champagne and mint together in a shaker. Pour into a tumbler filled with mint, fill Champagne to the top, and enjoy!
