The Magnolia

The—From Augusto Lino of Upstairs at the Square, Cambridge, Mass.

F. Martin Ramin for The Wall Street Journal

An easy, three-ingredient cocktail with a complex play of flavours. The acid from the verjus acts as a bridge between the sweet crème de cassis and the bitters.


¾ ounce Angostura bitters

¾ ounce 8 Brix Red Verjus

¾ ounce crème de cassis


Shake all ingredients with ice and double strain into a coupe glass. Small white edible flower garnish is optional.
