1 1/2 oz GrandTen Wireworks Special Reserve Gin
1/2 oz 383 Curaçao
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 short tbsp Apricot Jam

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
For my next drink at the GrandTen distillery's bar, I selected the Viaduct from the cocktail menu. Bartender Steve Schnelwar confirmed that it was their gin-for-vodka riff on the Aqueduct, but instead of trying to craft their own apricot liqueur, he subbed in apricot jam in its place. Once prepared, the Viaduct shared lime, orange, and hints of apricot on the aroma front. Next, orange and orchard fruit on the sip transitioned into gin and apricot on the swallow with a lime finish.
