1/2 oz Cointreau (orange-flavoured liqueur)
1 oz grapefruit juice
3 oz chilled Benjamin Bridge Nova 7


  1. Add ice to wine glass to chill.
  2. Add lavender to shaker tin or mixing glass. If using fresh lavender, or substituting with fresh rosemary, muddle lightly to bruise the herb and release essential oils.

  5. Top your wine glass with well-chilled Nova 7.
