Just in time for the dog days of summer, our head bartender at B&O American Brasserie in Baltimore, Brendan Dorr, offers a video recipe for the tangy, refreshing Le Citron Fizz cocktail. It’s got a citrusy bite that’s sure to beat the heat (and prevent scurvy).

It’s simple to build but includes a couple of unique ingredients, including Dimmi Liquore di Milano, an Italian aperitif with an orange essence that’s become a go-to item for bartenders, Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon mixer, and a sweet-and-sour grapefruit gastrique you can whip up yourself (check out the second video for that recipe).

Look out summer, it’s about to get fizzy up in here.

And here’s Brendan’s grapefruit gastrique recipe:

    It looks tasty! I look forward to test this drink, or my favorite drink, Margarita, at a Kimpton hotel, someday in the future…

    Cheers! 🙂
