The Imposter

This savory cocktail takes the familiar flavors of a Bloody Mary and gives them a lighter, brighter spin, with a kick of Tabasco spice.


2 oz. gin
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
3 cherry tomatoes, halved
3 basil leaves
2 dashes Tabasco
Tools: shaker, muddler, strainer, fine-mesh strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: basil leaf


Place the cherry tomatoes and basil in a shaker and muddle lightly. Add the remaining ingredients and fill the shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, double-strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
