Calvados & Tonic

Sarah Morrissey, Frenchette | New York

calvados & tonic

France’s answer to the G&T, the Calvados & Tonic is a staple in Normandy. Traditionally served chilled, without ice, Morrissey presents hers in a Burgundy glass with heaps of ice and a ton of tonic.  “I give it a simple lemon twist and it’s ready to go,” she says. “A little bitter and sweet, refreshing and bright.”
