Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Created as a drink of the day at Loyal Nine. I was inspired by the Hoop La cocktail which appears in the Savoy Cocktail Book under three other names including the Hey Hey and a nod to Algonquin Round Table member Frank Sullivan. To mimic the brandy base in the Hoop La, I utilized St. George's Spiced Pear Liqueur and opted for a more herbal base spirit of gin. I had tested the recipe out the week before with a regular as a 3:1:1:1 recipe, and he thought it was a bit thin but delicious. He reordered it as an equal parts number and rather enjoyed it. For a name, I stuck with the Hoop La theme and combined the Hey Hey with another Algonquin Round Table member, Heywood Broun, to form the Hey Heywood!
