About this Cocktail

This has some similarities to the Aviation and Blue moon but takes on a different character with the orange bitters and mint. This is a very bright and floral drink, with the gin, Yvette and mint adding character without overpowering each other. The mint flavor gets stronger as you drink it, so take out the mint leaves after a bit if you don't like that.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz London Dry Gin
  • 1/2 oz Creme Yvette
  • 5/8 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2-3 dashes orange bitters
  • 5-7 mint leaves
Preparation:

Add liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker partly filled with ice. Shake until the shaker frosts over. Pour into a martini or other similar glass. Add the mint leaves to the glass and gently muddle them.
