french laundry

1 1/2 oz Citadelle Gin
3/4 oz St. Germain
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3 dash Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

A few Tuesdays ago, we had dinner at Myers & Chang, and afterwards we rounded the corner and visited Joy Richard at the Franklin Café. For a first drink, I asked Joy for the French Laundry for the collection of ingredients reminded me of Brick & Mortar's Time Traveler. Originally, I thought the drink was on St. Germain Industry Night menu at the Franklin back in 2009, but from the photo in this post, it obviously came later. The name is most likely a tribute to one of the top restaurants in the world found in Napa Valley.
The French Laundry began with a gin, cherry, and floral aroma. A fruity sip with lime and cherry notes led into a gin-driven swallow that ended with nutty and floral accents.

And in 2016 the Franklin Cafe's French Laundry is still one of the best cocktail's in town!
