The Gin Crown is a masterful contrast in flavors: crisp gin and bright grapefruit, grounded by the nutty, cereal-tinged flavors of genever and walnut liqueur, topped off with the bracing spice of ginger beer.
It’s at once both eminently refreshing and richly mysterious, and it all just works so perfectly. It hails from the brilliant Jonathan Lind at NYC’s Crown Shy, and if it’s not already their flagship cocktail, it ought to be!
- ¾ part Gin or Aged gin
- ¾ part Genever
- 1 dash Walnut liqueur
- ½ part Lemon juice
- ½ part Grapefruit juice
- ½ part Simple syrup
- 3 parts Ginger beer
Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the ginger beer. Garnish with a slice or two of grapefruit.
