Olfactory Eavesdropping

Dan 3

It’s the spring season and a welcome time for a new cocktail recipe. I’ve been fortunate recently to have a few of my cocktails featured around the internet. Eater and Playboy highlighted my Olfactory Eavesdropping cocktail, a gin and rose drink inspired by one of the ways bees communicate.   Neither included the recipe (I recommend coming into Backbar and I’ll make you one) but if you want to make one at home here it is:

1.5 oz London dry gin (e.g. Beefeater)
0.5 Combier Liqueur de Rose
0.5 honey syrup {1:1}
0.5 fresh lemon juice
barspoon of maraschino liqueur

Shake with ice. Double Strain into chilled coupe.
Garnish with 3 drops of rose water.

Enjoy!
