This eye-catching spin on the Old Fashioned.

The cocktail menu at Martha in Brooklyn specializes in lower-ABV refreshers. This spin on the Old Fashioned combines sake with an Italian aperitivo and dry red wine.

  • 1 oz. Cocchi Aperitivo Americano
  • 1 oz. dry red wine
  • 3 dashes grapefruit bitters
  • 1 pea-size lump of palm sugar or demerara sugar
  • Tools:muddler, barspoon
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:lemon twist


Place a sugar lump in a glass and add the bitters and Cocchi Americano; muddle to dissolve the sugar. Add the sake and fill glass with crushed ice, then stir to combine. Pour the wine over a spoon to “float” atop the drink, creating two layers. Garnish.
