The Monk’s Respite is yet another fantastic recipe from the Smuggler’s Cove book, and its fascinating layers of tropical and herbal flavors make it one of our favorites in an already-outstanding collection.
Smuggler’s Cove called from Broker’s gin, a high-proof London Dry. You can use whatever gin you have on hand, but a higher-proof gin is the best option for standing up to the strong flavors of the yellow Chartreuse and coconut water.
- 1½ parts Gin
- ¼ part Yellow herbal liqueur
- 3 parts Coconut water
- ½ part Lemon juice
- ¼ part Honey syrup
- 1 dash Orange bitters
- 1 part Sparkling water
Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a tall glass or coconut shell. Top with sparkling water and garnish with the appropriate tropical accoutrement.
