About this Cocktail

An update on this classic from Charles Baker's "Gentleman's Companion" prepared by Danny Louie of Alembic and Cocktail Lab. It really doesn't get much more refreshing than this gorgeous drink.

To quote Baker this was "Hemingway's reviver on mornings after anything."

  • 2 oz. Bols Genever Holland gin
  • 1 oz. Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • Angostura Bitters
  • Mint for garnish

Add the first three ingredients over crushed ice and use a bar spoon to swizzle the mix.

Top with a generous amount of angostura bitters and garnish with mint.
