1 1/2 oz Beefeater Gin
1/2 oz Avèze Gentian Liqueur
1/2 oz Guava Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

A few Tuesdays ago, we were lured over to Estragon by the drink of the day. While we frequently visit Sahil on Mondays, he has been working at the bar on Tuesdays recently as well, and his guava-gentian liqueur drink seemed rather intriguing. Moreover, it reminded me of the passion fruit, gin, citrus, and bitters Tanglin Club. In asking Sahil for a name of the drink so I could post it on Instagram, Sahil came up with Hullabaloo after the Indian children's book Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard.
The Hullabaloo shared a foresty earthy-pine aroma from the gentian liqueur and gin. Lemon and guava on the sip led into cedar and spice flavors on the swallow. Overall, the drink did remind me of a Tanglin Club to some degree but also of a Groovy Child as well.
