Barolo Chinato is ideal for winter sipping, and when it meets the bright spark of cava and bittersweet tonic syrup, a lush bouquet of flavor emerges. If you opt to use a tonic syrup other than Bradley’s (or a commercial carbonated tonic), Aaron Kimmel suggests adding two dashes of allspice dram to help balance out the sweetness.
1½ oz. Barolo Chinato
¼ oz. tonic syrup (Kimmel uses Bradley’s)
1 oz. club soda
3 oz. cava
Glass: wine glass
Garnish: orange slice
Pour the chinato, tonic and club soda into a glass, add ice and stir until combined. Top with cava and garnish.
