1 1/4 oz Lemon

3/4 oz Honey Syrup (4:1 honey to water)

1/4 oz St. Germain Elderflower

1/4 oz Absinthe

Lemon peel

Cold Prosecco or Cava

  3. Double strain into a large coupe glass. Top with desired amount of Prosecco or cava.
  4. Express a lemon peel over the surface of the cocktail and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
