Gin Dragon

A complex beverage that showcases the most divisive of herbs: cilantro. I first discovered this cocktail at Cafe Cluny, the sister restaurant of Cafe Luxembourg. I was instantly enchanted. As a native of LA, I LOVE cilantro and this was the first time I'd seen it in a cocktail. The result is complex, but inviting, refreshing, but dangerous.


2 oz cilantro-infused gin* 

1 oz fresh lemon juice

1 oz Simple Syrup

4-5 dashes Peychaud bitters

Rinse of Pernod


Pour a few drops of Pernod into your chilled martini glass and drain. The Pernod is crucial, but a little goes a long way. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice before straining into your martini glass.

Tools needed: martini glass, cocktail shaker.

*For cilantro-infused gin: 

Take a handful of cilantro, including stems, and soak it in gin for 2-3 days, before straining it back into your gin bottle.
