Created by the G’s at La Luna Mezcal
On the heels of the Lucky Peach cocktail we are at it again showing off a the not-so-promoted side of wine- wine cocktails.
This wine cocktail features Lucky Rock Pinot Noir. This one, aptly titled “Chino Noir” (get it? Like Pinot) comes to us from the skilled mixologists, craftspeople and all-around Gs at La Luna Mezcal. Not gonna lie, we have a bit of a weakness for this smokey libation, or as we call it “tequila’s more serious older brother.”
Once it is combined with some fresh ingredients and topped with the smoothness and richness of the Lucky Rock Pinot Noir, it takes on a new life as your perfect nightcap. If this drink doesn’t make you “howl at the moon”, La Luna style we don’t know what will.
Here’s what’cha gonna need:
1.5 oz of La Luna Cupreata
.75 oz Meyer lemon juice
.50 oz Chamomile Syrup (peep this recipe to make some)
1-2 drops Floraluna Coffee, Cacao & Peppercorn Bitters ( or mess around with your own combos. It’ll be our secret)
.75 oz of Lucky Rock Pinot Noir. You can do .50 oz if you want your drink to be not as good…
So let’s get the show on the road and make this thing!
“… I’ve watched with dismay as the price of good pinot noir climbs ever higher. It’s a variety that’s so versatile that I could drink it with almost everything – if I could afford to…”
We feel ya on that, Laurie. Love the Pinot, hate the prices.
“The Lucky Rock more than held its own in a blind tasting with wines at three times the price.”
