Gin and génépy create an herbaceous base for this summery strawberry cocktail from Law Bird in Columbus, Ohio.


  • 1 1/4 oz. London dry gin
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. strawberry syrup
  • 1/2 oz. génépy
  • 10 drops Bittermens Orange Cream Citrate
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:Nick & Nora
  • Garnish:strawberry slice


Add all of the ingredients to a shaker, add ice, then shake to combine. Strain into a glass and garnish.

Strawberry Syrup: Combine 2 cups of quartered strawberries, 1 cup of water, and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat; stir to dissolve. Cook the mixture on a low boil for approximately 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and let simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Remove the syrup from heat and allow to cool, then strain well (using multiple layers of cheesecloth) into an airtight container and store refrigerated for up to 1 week. If preparing the syrup via sous vide, add 500 grams of strawberries, 500 grams of sugar, and 500 grams of water to an airtight bag and cook at 57.2 degrees Celsius for 90 minutes. Afterwards, chill the mixture in an ice bath for 30 minutes, then strain and store the syrup.
