Rosemary, Baby! from Prime Meats Recipe

Alice Gao

The Rosemary, Baby! is a brand-new creation from Damon Boelte of Prime Meats in Brooklyn; he describes it as a cross between a Brown Derby and an Aperol Spritz. In addition to being gorgeous, this punch has a delicate, fresh flavor: the sweetness from bourbon, honey, and sparkling wine is well-balanced by tart, fresh grapefruit and rosemary-laced Aperol.
