The good Mr. Rathbun credits Alston Chase with discovering The Martini Diaries, and this recipe therein.
- 3 gin (we used Hendricks)
- 0.5 Calvados
- 0.5 coffee
- 0.5 simple syrup
- Garnish: two roasted coffee beans
Good and subtle--we liked the combination of gin and coffee, although the two were sequential rather than happening in parallel. We would back off on the simple syrup, but none of us are particular fans of sweet cocktails (unless advertised as such after dinner).
