rive droite

1 oz Hayman's Royal Dock Gin (Alchemy Dry)
3/4 oz Ford's Sloe Gin (Plymouth)
3/4 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Two Wednesdays ago, I was excited to try a recipe that David Wondrich posted in his Twitter called the Rive Droite. This tribute to the River Seine in Paris is a riff on the Parisian (gin, dry vermouth, crème de cassis) from The Savoy Cocktail Book and takes things in a sloe plum instead of currant direction. Once prepared, the Rive Droite proffered a plum and lemon bouquet to the nose. Next, lemon and red oxidized fruit on the sip flowed into gin, plum, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
