A healthy New Year’s cocktail recipe. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. Ring in the New Year with a skinny version of your favorite festive cocktail! The First Crush is named for how verjus-a nonalcoholic grape juice that is slightly tart-is made from the first pressing of the annual grape harvest. To prepare, mix one ounce of white verjus-which you can find in most wine shops and specialty markets-with a single ounce of amber rum, such as Mount Gay Eclipse, then add one ounce Cocchi Americana vermouth or Lillet and one-ounce grapefruit juice {preferably fresh squeezed), then simply shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve with a grapefruit peel for garnish. Check online for more irresistible, health-conscious elixirs to set a new drinking standard in 2021.
