1 1⁄2 oz Gin, St. George Terroir
1⁄4 oz Cynar
1⁄4 oz Meyer lemon juice
1⁄4 oz Honey syrup (Infused with rosemary & sage)

Mix the first six ingredients in a pint glass. Add ice. Stir 30 seconds & strain into a chilled rocks glass. Add a large ice cube. Finish with a grapefruit twist.
Alternatively, strain into a chilled coupe (pictured).


Initial citrus blast, followed by the piney, aromatic flavors from the Terroir, moving into a light bitterness from the Cynar & Meyer lemon, then finishing with the honey. Complex but smooth.

Note that you could substitute Vya Whisper Dry for the Dolin, or orange bitters for the grapefruit.


First served on 2/28/2015 at the birthday and retirement party of a friend's mother in the eastern shadow of Mt. Diablo.
