Lewis & Martin

Lewis & Martin

This complex, unexpected libation is the kind of thing that earned mixologist Ted Haigh the “Dr. Cocktail” moniker. He specifies Lillet Blanc, but any white tonic wine will do. Don’t even try this with a bottom-shelf banana liqueur like 99 Bananas or Hiram Walker. Save this drink for when you find a really excellent crème de banane; the acrid sweetness of the crappy stuff completely kills the drink.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupé glass. Garnish with a lemon twist – a thick one, and squeeze it over the surface of the drink right before you serve it.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
