About this Cocktail

This cocktail is featured in Stew Ellington's '901 Very Good Cocktails' (Buy his book). The recipe is brand ambiguous, and just calls for gin, but I used St George's Terroir Gin. It added an extra herbaceous component that I loved. I also upped the lemon juice a bit for a little extra tartness.

  • 1.5 oz St George Terroir Gin
  • .75 oz R&W Apricot Liqueur
  • .75 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
  • 1 tsp Small Hand Foods Grenadine
  • .25 oz Meyer Lemon Juice
  • 3 dashes 'Bitter Queens' Eucalyptus Bitters

Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with cherry.

    Hey, I know that book! The bitters sound like a nice add!
