Pebbles, A Champagne Tipple by Fifth Floor
Fifth Floor bar manager Morgan Young channels the liveliness of peach Pop Rocks in her champagne cocktail Pebbles, but luckily she does it without mimicking the high-fructose zing of the candy. Orange curaçao, peach bitters, a grapefruit twist, and a sugar cube are married with Gloria Ferrer Rosé in an elegantly sweet-tart ceremony. Even if you can't try it tonight in honor of 2011, consider this a recommendation for an instant mood-improver. Happy New Year!
