seven year itch

1 1/2 oz Calvados (Morin Selection)
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Cane Sugar Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters (Jerry Thomas Decanter)

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe with 1 1/2 oz dry sparking wine (La Burgondie Cremante de Bourgogne).
Two Tuesdays ago, we had an opened bottle of sparkling wine, so I returned to Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book for a possible use. There, I was charmed by Eryn Reece's Seven Year Itch that she created in 2014 that came across like an apple brandy for Cognac Champs-Élysées plus bubbles. In the glass, the Seven Year Itch gave forth an apple and herbal bouquet. Next, lemon, apple, and honey notes on the sip led into apple, tart, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
