About this Cocktail

Named after the French word for arugula, the Roquette is Los Angeles bartender Matthew Biancaniello’s riff on a gimlet made with arugula. “It’s somewhere between an arugula gimlet and a gin mojito,” he says. Biancaniello muddles a big handful of spicy arugula rustica he gets from a Southern California purveyor into agave syrup and fresh lime juice before adding organic gin from Colorado. The result is a tree-frog green cocktail with a piquant tang that he pours up or over a large cube of ice.
