After the Glühwein I made yesterday I had some Barbera D’Alba left. Instead of a glass of wine I wanted to make a wine coctail. It is oh so sweet and more of a dessert coctail. The Barbera takes the lead but you feel the grappa close behind.
Shake 2 cl grappa, 1/2 lime, 3 cl sugar syrup. Pour it into a martini glass and fill it up with the Italian red wine.
If you have access to some excellent cheese cake; go for it! Salute!
