Wild Berry Spritz with Muddled Wormwood

This simple cocktail can easily be adapted if you don’t happen to find yourself in Cordova with access with wild wormwood and Raven’s homemade wild berry liquor. In lieu of wormwood muddle with a few rosemary leaves and in place of Raven’s liquor use a raspberry liqueur - or something similar.

A few Wormwood leaves

1/2 ounce berry liqueur

1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

Prosecco

Add a few Wormwood leaves to the bottom of a cocktail shaker. With a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon gently press the leaves to help release some of the aromatic oils in the leaves. To that add ice, berry liqueur and lemon juice. Shake vigorously. Pour in a glass then top with crisp prosecco or champagne. Garnish with lemon or more Wormwood
