French 79th

This cocktail from The Country Cat in Portland, Oregon, has everything you need at brunch, and more: grapefruit-infused gin, elderflower liqueur, rhubarb bitters and sparkling wine.

Fee Bros. makes rhubarb bitters, but if you can get your hands on an artisanal brand (or want to make your own), you'd be better off.

The grapefruit-infused gin is a cinch to make: steep the zest of two grapefruits in a bottle of good gin for a day or two. I used New Deal's No. 3, but House Spirits' Aviation is also wonderful.
