the sexpert

1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1 1/2 oz Peruvian Pisco (Encanto)
1/2 oz Gin (Aviation)
6 drop Bittermens Burlesque Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with an edible orchid or hibiscus flower (borage flowers).
Two weeks ago, I returned home from a Wednesday night shift at work and was in the mood for a fun nightcap. Therefore, I turned to the Smuggler's Cove book for inspiration. Amongst those pages, I uncovered Martin Cate's The Sexpert that he crafted in honor of Susie Bright's book launch party at the bar in 2011. In the glass, The Sexpert shared a floral aroma from the garnish and perhaps the pisco that was accented by clove from the falernum. Next, the sip offered lemon and tropical notes, and the swallow presented earthy and floral pisco flavors spiced by gin botanicals and the falernum's clove.
