The Weekday

Enjoying the work week can be a difficult task.

Sasha Pivovarova does the best "work is a drag" looks.

As we contemplate all the things that must be done in the week ahead, I give you a cocktail that is meant to be enjoyed mid-week for its low-alcohol content (equivalent to a glass of wine) that won't leave you feeling unmotivated and chewed up the next day.

The Weekday
1oz Sherry
1/4oz Brandy
1/2oz Dry Vermouth
1/2oz strawberry rhubarb syrup
1/2oz lemon

Recipe for strawberry rhubarb syrup here.

Combine all ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake and strain into coupe glass. Top with a dash of orange bitters.

Notes: I made this drink as a way to use up some of the strawberry rhubarb syrup in my fridge. It's a pretty versatile syrup that we have combined with gin, bourbon, tequila and now fermented wine. Try also subbing it in for any drink that calls for grenadine.
