Genever Cocktail: The Dutch Connection

Genever Highball

A lovely springtime twist on the G&T.

“This genever cocktail stems from my favorite spring/summertime drink, which for the longest time was Lillet Rosé and tonic,” says Bitter & Twisted bartender Keifer Gilbert. “The recipe combines that with a little bit of a backbone and a bump in proof from the genever.”


  • 1 oz. genever (Gilbert uses Bols)
  • 1 oz. Lillet Rosé
  • 3 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • Tonic water (Gilbert uses Q Indian)
  • Tools:barspoon
  • Glass:highball
  • Garnish:grapefruit twist


Combine the genever, Lillet and bitters in highball glass over fresh, clear ice. Stir to combine. Top with tonic water and garnish.
