Gin Blossom

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. More Gin Cocktails
