41 Days of Drinks (day 8)
One of the nicest spirits to come on the market in the past decade or so is G'Vine, the French grape gin distilled in the Cognac region.
Michael McDonagh, beverage director at Fisherman's Wharf-adjacent bar/club The Parlor in San Francisco, came up with a tasty cocktail featuring it. If you can't find G'Vine, I'd suggest another gin without too vegetal an herbal signature -- Boodles, Bombay white label, etc.
2 ounces G'Vine Gin
½ ounce Dimmi Italian liqueur
4 lemon slices
¼ ounce simple syrup
5 drops La tourment Vert Absinthe
Muddle lemon slices with simple syrup in a mixing glass. Add gin and Dimmi. Fill with ice. Shake and fine strain into cocktail glass. Drop absinthe over the cocktail. Garnish with lemon twist.
