the birth of liquid desires

1 oz Privateer Gin
1/2 oz King's Ginger Liqueur
1/2 oz Giffard Orgeat
1/2 oz Pineapple Shrub
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a Pilsner (or Highball) glass, fill with ice, garnish with 2 dash Angostura Bitters and a mint sprig, and add a straw.
For Andrea's first drink at Estragon, she requested bartender Sahil Mehta's drink of the day that utilized Privateer's Tiki Gin. For a name, I proposed a few Salvador Dali painting titles, and The Birth of Liquid Desires from 1932 won out. Once prepared, the drink generated a clove, mint, and pineapple bouquet. Next, a creamy lime sip gave way to a gin, ginger, and nutty swallow with pineapple finish that later gained clove notes from the floated bitters.
