(Makes one cocktail)
Bumbery has long been an advocate of Brooklyn-distilled Greenhook Ginsmiths Beach Plum Gin Liqueur, which is made with the fragrant Yankee fruit that one usually finds on seaside vacations, boiled into preserves. “It’s just tasty. Sometimes I offer the plum gin in shots. Even people who aren’t gin drinkers love this gin.”
- 3 lime wedges
- 3 lemon wedges
- 2 cubes sugar
- 2 ½ ounces Greenhook Ginsmiths Beach Plum Gin Liqueur
- club soda (to fill glass)
- 1 orange slice
In the pint glass of a Boston shaker, muddle limes, lemons, and sugar until pulpy. Add liqueur and ice and cover with the metal part of the shaker. Shake the ingredients until the outside of the shaker’s metal cup is frosty. Strain the ingredients into an ice-filled highball glass and top with club soda to fill the glass. Stir, garnish with an orange slice, and serve.
