2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Aromatized wine, Lillet Blanc
1⁄4 oz Bénédictine
1 Pickle (cornichon, as garnish)
1 twst Lemon peel (as garnish)
Instructions

Stir, strain, coupe. Swirl with garnish of speared dill/sour cornichon and lemon peel.

Notes

Because pickling ingredients vary, different cornichons will produce interestingly different results and complement different gins. I've been happiest with Hendrick's so far. A bit less complex but also good are traditional London dries.
