The bright fruit flavors of red currant meld with the intricate flavor of Root, a root beer-inspired spirit with notes of birch, dusky spice, bright herbs, and vanilla, to create the drinkable version of a lush walk in the woods. With its crimson hue, it reminds us of no one so much as our favorite fairy tale heroine.
- 2 oz. root beer liquor (like Root)
- 2 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 oz. simple syrup
- 2 1⁄2 tsp. red currant preserves
