Lonsdale

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Todd Smith, former bar manager at Bourbon & Branch, created the Lonsdale. "It's the perfect drink for guests who say they don't like gin," says mixologist Ryan Fitzgerald. "The gin, apple juice, honey and basil all create a flavor that's greater than the sum of its parts."
