Burnside Brooklyn's Sparkling Rose

Categories: The Daily Shot

The drink: Sparkling Rose

The bar: Burnside Brooklyn (506 Grand Street, 347-889-7793)

The price: $10

The ingredients: Laird's Applejack, lemon juice, house grenadine, Paul Louis champagne

The buzz: Burnside Brooklyn, a bar with a relaxed vibe that just opened in Williamsburg, serves Midwestern beers on tap and unfussy pre-Prohibition-style cocktails. The best one out of the lot, with the most girlish name, pairs applejack and champagne, a combination that's usually too sweet. But in the Sparkling Rose, these ingredients are spiked with a good amount of lemon juice and a slightly sour house grenadine, making a straightforward drink that still fits the bill.

It sounds like a great drink to try out the next time we pass by Burnside Brooklyn. We definitely won't let the name fool us next time.

Applejack is a eau de vie with no sugar added in the distillation process and Champagne tends towards dryness as well. I don't see what you mean by the two together being "usually too sweet."
