TARTUFO is a cocktail that seems fresh and light at first glance, but there’s a dark earthy veil behind all those bubbles and bright botanicals. It comes from truffle-infused honey, which is available in most good cheese shops, gourmet markets and online.
- 2 ounce plymouth gin
- 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
- ½ ounce black truffle infused honey
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, divided
- 2 ounce club soda
Fill a cocktail shaker ⅔ full with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and honey. Slap one rosemary sprig between both hands, or gently pinch it all over to release the oils; add it to the shaker. Cap the shaker and shake vigorously until well chilled. Using a Hawthorn strainer double strain the cocktail through a wire-mesh sieve into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with club soda and stir gently. Garnish with remaining rosemary sprig.
