This elegant and sophisticated gin-based cocktail is a complex and multi-layered treat. The herbal flavor of the gin pairs well with the minty undertones and floral notes of this sweet and tart mixed drink.


  • 1-1/2 ounces Gin
  • 1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce Lillet Rouge
  • 1 teaspoon Crème de Menthe
  • 1 teaspoon honey syrup
  • 3/4 ounce fresh white grapefruit juice
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 sage leaves
  • Fresh mint sprig to garnish


  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the garnish, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Vigorously shake the mixture for 30 seconds to chill and then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish the cocktail with the fresh mint and then serve immediately.
