Gypsy Eyes (Death & Co. Recipe)


This play on the Gipsy cocktail with grapefruit juice and Aperol to make it pink. I figured that since any twist on a classic is fair game to twist a little more, I used Don Ciccio & Figili Ambrosia as my local Aperol and Dolin Genepy in place of Green Chartreuse. Furthermore, the dry gin used at Death & Co. is Beefeater, a London classic. Was going for something more French with Citadelle gin.

Citadelle gin is really on par with some of the most lovely gins I've ever had: closer to The Botanist than Beefeater if only in quality. So after making a modification to every ingredient in the recipe, I present to you Gypsy Eyes!

  • Green Chartreuse (Dolin Genepy used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. Beefeater gin (Citadelle used)
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. Aperol (Ambrosia used)
  • 1/2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 oz. simple syrup

Coat the inside of a coupe glass with Chartreuse (or Genepy) and dump. Combine remaining ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into the coated coupe glass.
