Brady Wilkens, bartender at Lucy, created the CBC, which is made with Chopin Vodka, raspberry liqueur, pineapple guava
syrup, grapefruit juice and cherry bitters. The cocktail can be ordered
at the bar and from the regular
"I wanted to feature the pineapple guava, since we grow them here in our garden," Wilkens said.
A recent visit to Lucy to sample the CBC also led to some strong suggestions for tasty bites to accompany the complex sweet and slightly tart cocktail.
Those included chickpea and edamame hummus with herb flatbread, and some incredibly moist and flavorful Maine Diver Scallops with sunchoke puree, roasted quince and caperberry pinenut brown butter.
"The scallops are my favorite," said Lucy Manager Guy Barstad.
