Fruity cocktails don’t always need to be made with rum or vodka. The Look Out Below at View Lounge at The Strat gets its rich flavor from a bubbly peach lambic and the nutty finish of cognac. And blackberry preserves give it a bold purple ombre color.
■ 5 ounces Lindeman’s Peche Lambic
■ 1½ ounces Hennessy V.S. Cognac
■ 1 ounce fresh lemon sour
■ 2 dashes of Australian Aromatic Bitters
■ 2 bar spoons of blackberry preserves
■ Frozen blackberries
■ Dried lemon wheel
Combine all ingredients except the lambic in a cocktail tin with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass over ice. Top with lambic and add garnish.
