The Heirloom

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Jean Georges • Manhattan

On a night off from Jean Georges, pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini guest-bartended at the East Village bar PDT and created this cocktail. The sweet licorice–flavored anise hyssop essence he spritzes on the drink is frequently available at aftelier.com; spearmint essence always is.
