West Indies Sour

There’s a lot to love about Sacramento—the city boasts a growing cocktail week celebration, and buzzing beer, coffee and wine scenes. But if you only need one reason to love Sacramento, let it be this warming Cabernet-spiked cocktail from one of the city’s favorite drinking spots, The Red Rabbit.

1 oz. brandy
1 oz. allspice dram
¾ oz. fresh lime juice
¾ oz. Cabernet sauvignon
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: lime twist

Combine ingredients and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into a coupe, then garnish.
