About this Cocktail

I was at Canon in Seattle and after a couple rounds, I asked one of the bartenders to make me some kind of Shim. What I got was a delicious and well balanced low-alcohol cocktail based on a half ounce of Peychaud's Bitters! After chatting some more, I learned that he had also used Lillet Rosé. Once I acquired a bottle of Lillet Rosé at home, I set out to attempt to replicate that delicious cocktail. This is very close. Since it was a Roulette drink, it wasn't on their menu or in their Pacific NW Gentleman's Conpanion - I just made up the name for it because it's a Peychaud's based Shim.

  • 0.5 oz Peychaud's Bitters
  • 2.0 oz Lillet Rosé
  • 0.5 oz Grapefruit juice
  • 0.5 oz 1:1 simple syrup

Shake all the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish. Repeat if you want - it's a Shim after all...

    This is drastically better when made with Grapefruit juice instead of Lemon juice like I originally used in my re-creation attempt.
  • Tim Walker
    Whew, half an ounce of Peychaud's! That'd be some pricey repeating. I'm almost afraid I'll love it!
  • Tim Walker
    It's damn good. Just as I feared.
  • Tim S.
    Glad you liked it Tim! I buy the big bottles of Peychaud's now...
  • Tim Walker
    Haha, yes. I may have to super-size my next Peychaud's order.
