Une Belle Vie Spritz

By Abigail Gullo featured in How to Spritz French Fluently
Mia Johansson wished to translate a “fresh meadow feel” with this drink, inspired by absinthe, also called “the green fairy.” She mixes tangy lime sherbet with both dry vermouth and wormwood-flavored vermouth. St-Germain and champagne add depth and body, and cucumber ribbons provide a garden-fresh greenness.
