RECIPE

Beautiful Audrey

Marissa Chafetz / Supercall

Sparkling wine has the power to class-up anything, whether you pour it into a Guinness or add it to a Rum & Coke. Bartender Luis Serrano of The Penrose in NYC had the same idea when he decided to mix bubbly with Malibu. "The cocktail [Beautiful Audrey] is a version of the Old Cuban by Audrey Sanders of Pegu Club and Clover Club,” he says. “The inspiration came after learning that Clover just celebrated its 10th anniversary, which is quite rare in this industry." He mixes coconut rum with muddled mint and blueberries, fresh lime juice and Angostura bitters for depth and balance. The resulting cocktail is impressive enough to serve to your most highbrow friends, but it’s also easy drinking for cocktail newbies.
