resonance cocktail

1.5 oz gin

.5 oz genepy (you can use chartreuse for this)

.5 oz canton ginger liqueur

.25 oz allspice dram

combine over ice and stir.  strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  lemon zest garnish.

 

came up with this for a local distiller whose gin we carry and who comes by for a cocktail once a week or so.  almost called it the assassin, because it’s all booze and it’ll sneak up on you (and lay you low if you’re not careful), but settled on resonance because of the way the allspice and genepy linger on the tongue long after the sip has trickled down into your belly.
