“Our cocktail list complements the extensive French wine program we have at La Coop. All the cocktails we serve have some sort of fortified wine, and they’re lower in alcohol content—more aperitif-style—than what you often find on a cocktail menu. For this one I picked a low-proof bourbon and jazzed it up with Dolin Blanc vermouth. To that I added a ginger liqueur and lemon, and finished it with lemon bitters to heighten the citrus experience even more. The sprig of thyme is there for olfactory reasons; it helps accentuate the herbal qualities in the vermouth. The drink is like a really citrusy, gingery Manhattan, with half the booze content, so it’s perfect for summer. There’s actually a town in Kentucky called Versailles, but everyone pronounces it ver-sales. Local people come in and order this using that pronunciation, and everyone else says it the French way.”
