A good friend sat at my bar one night and said he wanted me to create something for him. He told me a story about longing. Essentially about the one who got away, or at least got away for now. She was beautiful and he painted a picture of her walking the streets of New York on a cool fall evening. I wanted aromatics that spoke of something beautiful but a weight that would evoke the emptiness that you feel, aching for someone far away. The pain of love can be a beautiful and intoxicating mix of things.



Stir and strain into a coupe glass, garnish with a cherry

What a lovely drink!  Trolling around the originals section, I stumbled across this recipe.  I just happened to have an old tom, and london dry chilling in the freezer.  This was a nice surprise.  The floral notes of violet and orange playing off the crispness of the gin.  We really enjoyed this one, and will add it to our regular rotation.

Did you try this drink?
