Cocktail Recipe | Wish You Were Here | Fountain of Youth

The Fountain of Youth, from the You Are Here* cocktail collection, focuses on citrus and the impact it had on Florida, where the fountain of youth was thought to be located. This cup recipe follows the template of spirit, fortified wine and fruit liqueur. Tall and refreshing, with a tart and bitter finish, this cocktail is a great aperitif or a lazy afternoon sipper.

Make your own at home, plus The Forbidden Cocktail, via our new cocktail kit, available for curbside pickup in May. Each kit has the goods for 2 of each cocktail. Visit our Instagram @RedbirdLA to watch Bar Director Tobin Shea guide through the recipes. Or, enjoy it the DIY way at your leisure. Instructions will also be included in the kit. Availability and offering subject to change.
