Cocktail O’ Clock: The Eversong
This cocktail hails from Mettle, one of my favorite spots here in Austin. I just love a Vesper in the wintertime (and champagne literally any time), so Mettle’s twist on this is something special. They were kind enough to share their recipe with me so I could share it with all of you.
A few words on the drink from bartender and creator, Mike McMillan: “It’s an ode to the classic Vesper. Also known as the Eversong, which is the sixth of the seven canonical hours, this reminded me of the hour before midnight drawing near.”
.5 oz. NOLET’S Silver Dry Gin
.5 oz. Ketel One Vodka
.25 oz. Kina L’Avion d’Or
Top with Moet Imperial Reserve Cuvee
Shake all ingredients (excluding the Champagne) together in a cocktail shaker, strain into a martini glass. Top up with Cuvee. Garnish with a lemon twist.
