After years of drinking various types of alcohol (since I can not really handle most beers) while in art school, attending gallery openings, going to art fairs, art fair after parties & the real party after the after party I developed many mixes for people (if you mix you can talk without needing to drink that much) and found that for myself there was one mix that tasted great and clean, sat well on me (no milk or odd additions), wasn’t crazy expensive and didn’t go one note on me over multiple glasses ( looking at my one time love the mojito which in all my travels oddly the best place that made multiple ones for me was a Brazilian bar in East Berlin).
I called it Vernissage for multiple reasons.
One, everything we did was a Vernissage, every art opening was named after the french term used for a preview of an art exhibition, which may be private, before the formal opening.
Two the main ingredients were both french, so it made sense.
Three the main flavor was orange but from two completely different schools of thought, basically just the ago old artistic contrast & compare.
With that said, enjoy if you are out and about and want something to drink and think about.
