Cocktail of the Month: Monkey’s Paw

By Ben Clemons of No. 308

“Be careful what you wish for, you may just get it.”

This drink was named after the short story by W. W. Jacobs.  The story is a fable of sorts with a lesson that interfering with fate has its consequences. The paw from a dead monkey brought three wishes to those who found it, however, never the way they hoped. This drink is delicious yet stronger than you’d imagine. The results of drinking a few of these may be a little more than you bargained for.

THE GOODS

  • 1 1/2 oz Fords Gin
    1/2 oz St-Germain liqueur
    1/2 oz Gran Classico Bitter
    sparkling wine (Cava, Prosecco, etc.)

************************************************

Stir the first 3 ingredients and pour into a chilled coupe glass.

Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a grapefruit zest. Be careful, you have been warned!
