better luck tomorrow early startThis cocktail from the inaugural menu at Better Luck Tomorrow features sorrel, a nod to the bar’s work with chef Justin Yu and local producers.

1½ oz. aquavit (Negranza uses Krogstad)
½ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. orgeat (Negranza uses Giffard)
1 fresh egg white (pasteurized if you like)
1 French sorrel leaf
Tools: muddler, shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: red-veined sorrel leaf

Muddle the sorrel in a shaker and add the remaining ingredients. Shake well without ice until foamy, then add ice and shake again to chill. Double strain into chilled glass, then garnish.
