This is inspired by a cocktail I had at Gigis' Trattoria in Rhinebeck, NY. It's deliciously refreshing - awesome for drinking outside! - apartmentcooker —Erin Jeanne McDowell

Test Kitchen Notes

Mint, lime juice, gin and bubbles. There is little more that I want in a grown-up summer cocktail. The mint complements the herbal qualities in the gin and the Prosecco lightens the drink, making it go down really easily. - Emily —The Editors

I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, The Book on Pie, came out on November 10th, 2020, and my pie merch collaboration with Food52 is out now too: https://food52.com/shop/merchants/manifest-food52/food52-x-erin-mcdowell

Delicious cocktail that comes together so easily! I used a local PA gin that had notes of citrus/herbs which paired perfectly.

Can you share where the glass in the photography can be found? I'm searching for some coupe glasses.

I made this for a full bottle of prosecco. I used 6x the amount of mint/sugar/lime/gin. It turned our pretty well, but I would probably cut down on the sugar a bit.
