There's always room for one more tasty Gin cocktail so here it is. I call it The Confessional to give a nod to the integral splash of Benedictine included but also for the truth serum like qualities of this elixir. The botanicals in the Gin marry perfectly with the herbal qualities of Benedictine. Enjoy in moderation.
2 oz. London Dry Gin
1/2 oz. Benedictine
3/4 oz. Lemon juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
This cocktail is great in any season but I love it in a northern spring when the skies are blue and the temperature is comfortable but just south of warm.
Shake all ingredients well and strain into chilled coupe or martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Swap the London Dry Gin with Genever if you like and I find this cocktail to be equally good (whilst different) with lemon or lime juice.
