Jardin Epice

Jardin Epice highball cocktail with gin, sparkling water, elderflower liqueur, blanc vermouth, Angostura bitters, and cardamom bitters

The Jardin Epice was the first-place winner of the 2017 Gin Jubilee, a cocktail competition held across Asia and Oceania. It’s the creation of Kazi Tanbir at HYDE in Kuala Lumpur, and represents a career steeped in the flavors of herbs and spices, incorporated into ever-more-popular cocktails.

Tanbir’s recipe calls for Citadelle gin, a botanic-forward gin with notes of port and anise alongside the usual flavors of juniper and citrus. It also uses East Imperial Burma Tonic, a tonic water made with additional notes of lemongrass and Manao lime.

You may not have access to these specific brands, but worry not! Even with standard-issue tonic water and your favorite botanical gin, the Jardin Epice is a flavorful, exotic delight, every bit as lovely to gaze at as it is to sip.

Great app!

Yes! The latest update has fixed the bugs that annoyed me and added the features I was after. Love the curated list of cocktails! My favorite cocktail app (and I've tried a few).
