Quick Fix: Rosemary's Bambino

Rosemary's Bambino a delicate mix of sweet and tart
Baseball season is in full swing (pun totally intended) and tomorrow marks the 64th anniversary of Babe "The Great Bambino" Ruth's death. To salute the greatest baseball player of all time we are trying a new original Middlebar cocktail, Rosemary's Bambino.

I usually don't offer drinks this brand specific, but he spirit brands listed below should be used due to the delicate nature of this drink. It may not seem like much, but substituting Bulliet Bourbon for Basil Hayden's will make a completely different beverage (one that probably won't taste as good). And just because they are both red, Aperol & Campari are two different beverages with drastically different flavors.

This drink is a delicate mix of sweet and tart creating a perfect cocktail. If you're having a classic cocktail party looking for something completely unique, look no further, this is your drink.

Rosemary's Bambino
1oz Basil Hayden's Bourbon
1oz Carpano Antica
1oz Campari
1 oz ruby red grapefruit juice
1 sprig of rosemary

Stir ingredients in a mixing glass with ice until chilled. Gently strain along one sprig of fresh rosemary into a rocks glass with a large ice cube or ball. 

Enjoy Ya'll!
