pinky ring

1 1/2 oz Pineau des Charentes
1 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

After working a tough New Years Day brunch shift, I sought refuge at Kirkland Tap & Trotter on the way home. There, Kenny Belanger and Tyler Wang were tending bar, and I ended up getting a drink made by both of them. For a light starter, I started with Kenny's Pinky Ring which reminded him of the Chrysanthemum. With Pineau des Chartentes in the mix, I was definitely interested.
The Pinky Ring shared a white grape and floral bouquet. A grape and honey sip led into a herbal swallow with a minty finish. Overall, the Pinky Ring had a delightfully light and elegant feel to it.
