Davy Butterworth, the beverage director at Decca in Louisville, Ky., oversees a team of bartenders, like former bartender Aida Ramirez, who crafted this summery, low-proof cocktail. Its base of ginger liqueur is accented by pisco, lemon and turmeric simple syrup. The drink is vibrantly orange and given a crisp finish from a splash of prosecco.



  1. Add all ingredients except the prosecco into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a chilled coupe glass.

  3. Top with the prosecco.

*Turmeric simple syrup: Bring 1 tbsp ground turmeric, 1/3 cup freshly peeled and chopped turmeric, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Use a cheesecloth, strain the grounds out of the syrup. Will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 1 month.
