It’s a special day when we have the opportunity to combine alcohol with dessert, but hey, sometimes you really can have it all. The aptly named Bright Start is a delicate combination of clean tasting, American-made gin, bitter lemon soda, and sweet, sweet sorbet. It’s simple to make, easy to drink and will leave you completely sated at the end of a long day. Go ahead and have seconds — you deserve it.
2 oz. Aviation American Gin
4 oz. Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon Soda
1 scoop of lemon sorbet
Zested lemon peel for garnish
Fresh raspberry for garnish
In a white wine glass filled with ice, add the gin and soda. Stir and serve with a scoop of lemon sorbet on top. Garnish with lemon zest and a fresh raspberry.
