Philippe Gouze uses fresh chervil two ways in his peppery cocktail: He juices the licoricey herb, stems and all, and then uses additional leaves as a garnish.

  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  2. 1 tablespoon water
  3. 1/2 tablespoon honey vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  4. Ice
  5. 1/3 cup gin, preferably Tanqueray 10
  6. 1/2 tablespoon Chervil Juice
  7. Large pinch of freshly ground pepper
  8. 1/4 cup chilled tonic water
  9. Chervil leaves, for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, stir the honey, water and vinegar until the honey is dissolved. Add ice along with the gin, Chervil Juice and pepper; shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and stir in the tonic water. Garnish with chervil leaves.
