Tiny Pink Bubbles
By Lynda Wheatley | Feb. 20, 2021
Hey, ladies, do we have the pink drink for you: Aerie’s Tiny Pink Bubbles. With a taste and body as delicious as its name and presentation is darling, this fanciful concoction masterminded by manager Alex Truck is utterly worth our obsession.
A foundation of botanical berry-pink gin gets the party started while a bracing squeeze of fresh lime juice and a lacing of champagne syrup — Mawby’s Sex, a sparkling brut rose, blended with a touch of sugar and reduced in-house — dresses it up. The trio, once shaken and strained into exactly the kind of cocktail glass this class act deserves, is topped with a second round of Sex, also obviously deserved. Light, bubbly, sweet, sour, and Sex-y as it gets. $11.
Find Tiny Pink Bubbles at Aerie, located on the 16th floor of the Tower inside Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, 100 Grand Traverse Village Blvd., Williamsburg. (231) 534-6800, www.grandtraverseresort.com.
