But when something goes and calls itself the Spring Day Cooler and mixes a couple of aperitifs with fresh pineapple, you sit up and pay attention. And then proceed to order a round for the table.
And that’s what’s happening at Timna, the modern Israeli-Mediterranean spot in New York’s East Village where you can find this very drink. Well, that’s one of two places. The other being about a centimeter below.
Spring Day Cooler
1 1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1 oz Byrrh Grand Quinquina
3/4 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz simple syrup
Combine all ingredients, shake well and strain over ice into a glass. Top with club soda and garnish with a fresh pineapple wedge.
