Stalk and Trade
Some green things — like mint and basil — get plenty of play in cocktails, but one doesn’t see arugula very often. It’s a bright, peppery surprise in this refreshing cocktail by Brian Means of the San Francisco bar and restaurant Dirty Habit. Means advises using Krogstad aquavit here, for its assertive anise note.
- 1 ½oz. gin
- ½oz. aquavit (Means prefers Krogstad, for its ample anise)
- ¾oz. lemon juice
- ¾oz. ginger syrup
- A small handful of arugula
Step 1Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice for 10 seconds. Strain into a coupe.
