Chef notes

Created by Nick Mautone, Managing Director of Rainbow Room and Bar SixtyFive at the Rainbow Room, this bubbly drink has a beautiful ombré effect that reminds us of a sunset. The cocktail is full of passion from the cherry, heat from the jalapeño slices and exotic flavors from the pineapple juice and turmeric, plus happy bubbles from the Champagne.


In a cocktail shaker, place the tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup, cherry juice, pineapple juice, jalapeño slices and turmeric. Add the ice and shake vigorously. Double strain the cocktail into Champagne glasses, then top with the Champagne and garnish.
