Christopher McDonald of Toronto’s Cava restaurant is a master of much more than the gourmet tapas for which he is known. Here he adds the creation of a refreshing Chatelaine cocktail to his list of accolades. Sit back and enjoy a grown-up take on a childhood fave: the float. (We did!)
Blue moon over Barcelona
Handful fresh mint
1 1/2 tsp white rum
1/3 cup Cava or sparkling wine
1 large scoop lemon or lime sorbet
1 oz wild-blueberry juice
(such as Van Dyk’s)
Muddle mint in the bottom of a highball glass. Fill glass with ice. Pour in the liquids except for the wild-blueberry juice. Spoon sorbet onto beverage. Top with wild-blueberry juice. Garnish with a lime wedge.
