About this Cocktail

Note from mixologist Suzie Robinson (Novela): "I was inspired by fresh cherries and Ernest Hemingway, the main inspiration behind Novela. I felt a cherry soda would be a lovely compliment to the flavor of Cointreau, and housemade sodas are a specialty of Novela. The touch of grapefruit and cherry soda was a bit of a play on a Hemingway Daiquiri."


  • 1½ oz Cointreau
  • ½ oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
  • ½ oz fresh lime juice
  • ¼ oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • Housemade cherry soda (made with bing cherries, Luxardo Maraschino liquor, and maraschino cherry syrup)
  • Garnish: grapefruit curl and cherry half

Combine the Cointreau, vermouth, lime juice, and grapefruit in tin. Add ice and shake until chilled. Pour over fresh ice in a double rocks glass. Top with cherry soda. Grapefruit curl should be cut over drink and then placed on top with the half cherry on the rim.
