elder fashion

2 oz Plymouth Gin (Beefeater)
1/2 oz St. Germain (St. Elder)
2 dash Orange Bitters (Scrappy's)

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
I continued on with another Phil Ward recipe that I had not made yet in the Death & Co. Cocktail Book called the Elder Fashion. This 2007 drink from the Old Fashioned section of the book reminded me of a pair of guests at Nahita who requested this every time they sat at the bar. In the glass, the Elder Fashion showcased a grapefruit and floral bouquet. Next, grapefruit and pear notes on the sip set up a gin and grapefruit swallow with a pine finish.
