About this Cocktail

I wanted gin but didn't want tonic or lime. The Citadelle gin is very floral and citrusy so I went searching for things around the house to add that weren't floral or citrus but would complement those characteristics. It must have worked because I've had one of these for three nights in a row.

  • 2 oz Citadelle gin
  • 1/4 oz simple syrup
  • 4 drops Élixir Végétal de la Grande-Chartreuse
  • 4 drops black pepper tincture
  • mint leaf for garnish

Combine ingredients over ice, stir 40-50 revolutions to wet it good and calm it down. Strain onto rocks, throw in that leaf.

    Well, hot damn that sounds like a winner!
