DOTW: Cloister

cloister (c)2007 AECAnother citrusy drink from last week’s visits to the Pegu Club. Although the original recipe calls for 1/4 ounce of simple syrup, Nate made it for us without — and it definitely tasted plenty sweet from the Chartreuse. On paper, it feels like a Friday After Five, but the missing anise and green-herb notes prevents the similiarity.

1-1/2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz. grapefuit juice
1/4 oz. lemon juice

Shake all ingredients with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist, preferably grapefruit.

I like rather tart cocktails over the sweet ones. And of course I’m a big grapefruit fan.

I love the name. Instantly makes me think of sin.
