Suppressor #M

Chris Molnar | Atlanta

This sangria-like suppressor from Atlanta’s Chris Molnar starts with a rich foundation of madeira and moscatel, cut by the bitterness of the gentiane-infused French aperitif liqueur, Salers. A topping of┬ásparkling wine transforms this into something of a throwback spritz.
