Pine-y the Elder

Andrew Aoun, TAPS Fish House & Brewery, Brea, CA, USA

“A riff on the Russian River Brewing Company’s Pliny the Elder IPA. Citrusy, refreshing, and crisp.” Andrew Aoun

Pine-y The Elder30 ml (1 oz) Sipsmith gin

30 ml (1 oz) Amaro Braulio

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice

22.5 ml (.75 oz) rich simple syrup (2:1)

Soda water


1 lemon twist, as garnish

1 miniature pinecone, as garnish

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled collins glass. Add ice and top with a splash of soda and IPA. Stir briefly to incorporate. Form the lemon twist into a rose and add the garnishes.

gaz sez: I had to try this just so I could try Braulio amaro (which is pretty gorgeous), and of course it also gave me a chance to drink more Sipsmith gin, an opportunity that I’d never pass up. It’s a tough life I have. This whole thing comes together really well—it’s refreshing, tart, and it packs a nice wallop.
