A play on aide-mémoire, a French word that means a memory aid or mnemonic device, this cocktail from Bea in New York City is the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. A prosecco float gives it a celebratory air.
- 1 1⁄2 oz. sweet vermouth, such as Carpano Antica
- 1⁄2 oz. yellow Chartreuse
- Dash of orange bitters
- Prosecco, to top
- Orange twist, for garnish
- Combine vermouth, Chartreuse, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass. Top with prosecco and garnish with orange twist.
