DRINK THIS: Lindsay Jones’ sparkling Spring Fling 

An easy-to-make, easier to drink morning cocktail from one of the city’s best bartenders.

  • Rachel McGrath

What's the difference between breakfast and brunch? Mostly whether or not your OJ's been spiked. Lindsay Jones, bar boss at The Middle Spoon (1563 Barrington Street), says if she's having a cocktail with her late-morning meal, it's got to be fresh, light and easy-drinking enough that she can have two without fear of getting tipsy. "Alcohol, in general, is a part of every meal—it's one of the most fun things about brunch," she says. "It's a great way to bring people together."

The next time brunch hosting duties are on your plate, Jones suggests washing down the bacon and eggs with this sparkling wake-up creation: A perfectly light (even with tequila) pairing for a majorly heavy meal, with a low ABV for maximum morning enjoyment. "Tequila gets a bad rap," she says. "I'm all about making people fall in love with tequila." —AS

Spring Fling
2 oz fresh-pressed grapefruit juice
¼ oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

No tools, so it’s easily made at home! In a large wine glass add all ingredients over ice and stir briefly. Garnish with three or four cucumber wheels in the glass.
