The Grove Keeper is a rich, flavorful cocktail that features a delicious homemade apricot syrup and a heavy, meringue-like foam. The sweetness of the apricot syrup is balanced by a small amount of Campari, which gives the drink an amazingly rich color.


3 oz Belvedere Vodka
1 ½ oz Apricot Syrup
¼ oz Campari
Juice of half a lemon
Pinch of sugar
1 egg white
Dash orange bitters
