The next gin classic?
Created by bartender Chris Jepson at London cocktail institution Milk & Honey in 2002 as a simple twist on a gin sour, this cocktail is the only one to appear on every version of their cocktail menu since.
The addition of dry sherry to a gin sour demonstrates perfectly that a new ingredient can deliver new combinations and truly delicious libations.
Light, fresh and quaffable, we think this contemporary cocktail could well be a future inductee to the canon of gin classics.
Shake over ice and strain into a chilled coupette or martini glass.
Garnish with a grapefruit twist (a thin strip of zest with as little white pith as possible).
