1 1⁄2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Apple brandy (Such as Laird's Bonded)
3⁄4 oz Dry vermouth
1⁄4 oz Raspberry syrup
1 ds Peychaud's Bitters (See note)
1 twst Lemon peel

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon twist. Originally, I made this with 1 dash Peychaud's but an Instagram follower tried it and recommended 2 dashes.


Pink Lady/Martini/Clover Club hybrid


When I spied the raspberry syrup bottle in the fridge, it was next to the dry vermouth which got me thinking of a Martini. I split the gin with apple brandy akin to the Pink Lady. The raspberry syrup also made me think of the Florodora which put me on a Zigfeld Follies naming theme; I dubbed this one the Gypsy Rose after Rose Louise Hovick's stage name when she was a burlesque entertainer and Zigfeld Follies girl in the 1930s.
