Brunch Cocktail: Slippery When Wet

Death & Co. Cocktail

A dollop of Greek yogurt is the key to this creamy cocktail.

At Death & Co. in New York, bartender Shannon Tebay Sidle experiments with yogurt in both sweet and savory drinks. This recipe, featured in Maggie Hoffman’s book The One-Bottle Cocktail, combines unsweetened yogurt with strawberry, lemon, honey, gin and black pepper. “The Greek yogurt gives the cocktail a tangy flavor and subtly creamy texture,” says Hoffman.


  • 1 large or 2 small ripe strawberries, halved
  • ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz. honey
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 heaping tsp. plain Greek yogurt
  • Tools:shaker, muddler, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:rocks
  • Garnish:freshly ground black pepper and a strawberry slice


Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and honey in a shaker and muddle until well broken up. Add the gin and yogurt and fill the shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Double-strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish.
