cub room

1 oz Gin (Beefeater)
1 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
1/2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Honey Syrup 1:1

Shake with ice, strain into a rocks glass with ice (coupe without ice), and garnish with a rosemary sprig (omit).
Two Fridays ago, a recipe on Punch Drinks called the Cub Room caught my attention. This recipe by bartender Anthony Rouhana at the Cub Room in Rochester, New York, reminded me of the Earthbound given the combination of honey and Aperol. Here, the Cub Room shared an orange, pine, and grapefruit aroma. Next, lemon and orange notes on the sip clawed into pine, grapefruit, orange, and honey flavors on the swallow.
