Cab's Melody Recipe

Crafted by Antonio Thompson, Director of Beverage Innovation

What better way to enjoy the cold weather than with a cocktail meant to evoke the season’s best flavors? For Cab’s Melody, the autumn colors and tastes were the inspiration. With the savory, citrus notes of Earl Grey tea, the liveliness of poached pears in spiced red wine, and the slight bitterness of Aperol, this is certainly a fall favorite.

Cab’s Melody

1 oz Earl Grey-infused Vodka

1 ½ oz Poached Pear Cabernet Sauvignon reduction

½ oz Aperol

¼ oz fresh lime juice

2 shakes Angostura Bitters

Simple syrup to taste, maximum ½ oz 

Method:

Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into cocktail glass, serve up.

Earl Grey-infused Vodka

Infuse One (1) Cup Earl Grey Tea Leaves per One (1) 1L bottle of Vodka. Infuse for 2 hours, stirring and shaking during infusion process. Strain into bottles when complete.
