As a companion to our reporting on neighborhood quarantinis, Town Crier wine columnist Christine Moore sent a bulletin from her shelter-in-place sommelier activities in Mountain View: She’s been making a cocktail she’s calling Shelter in “Haus,” which features a California-made aperitif (learn more at drink.haus). Aperitifs are comparatively low in alcohol and loaded with complex botanical flavors, ready to sip alone or with bubbly water, and great in a cocktail with strong spirits.
Shelter in ‘Haus’
• 1 part Haus Citrus Flower
• Juice of 1 lime
• Healthy splash pomegranate liquor
• 3 shakes blood-orange bitters
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add all. Pour into glass and, Moore exhorts, “exhale and enjoy!”
