Fennel Puccini

Fennel Puccini

The Puccini cocktail takes its name from the famous Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, creator of Madame Butterfly and many other beloved performances.  A Puccini is similar to a Mimosa or a Bellini, save that the leading ingredient is mandarin juice. 
We've spiced ours up with a little Orange & Fennel Botanical Syrup from Wild Roots Apothecary and a dash of our own sumac bitters for good measure. 




  1. In a shaker, muddle the mandarin segments with the gin and the wild roots syrup.  Add ice and shake until well-chilled.  

  2. Add some ice to a white wine glass.  Add the reserved mandarin segments to the glass.  Strain the muddled mixture over the ice, following with the dash of sumac bitters.  Top off with the prosecco, stirring once or twice to combine.
