Gin Blossom

  • SERVINGS: 1 drink

Julie Reiner · Clover Club
"Eau-de-vie can be a challenging spirit to work with," says Julie Reiner, who owns Manhattan's Flatiron Lounge and the Clover Club in Brooklyn. "It can add a lot of depth to cocktails, but it's also very intense, so I like to pair it with other aromatic spirits." In this fragrant, crystal-clear cocktail, Reiner matches apricot eau-de-vie with juniper-scented gin.

  1. 1 lemon twist
  2. Ice
  3. 3/4 ounce Martini Bianco vermouth (see Note)
  4. 2 dashes orange bitters
  5. 3/4 ounce apricot eau-de-vie
  6. 1 1/2 ounces Plymouth gin
  1. Fill a pint glass with ice. Add the gin, eau-de-vie, vermouth and bitters and stir well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the lemon twist.
Notes Martini Bianco is a slightly sweet, vanilla-flavored vermouth, not to be confused with extra-dry vermouth.
