Stepford Sister

Jon Hughes, Bramble Bar & Lounge, Edinburgh, UK

“For a long time, I’d wanted to create something zippy and refreshing for that perfect afternoon aperitivo moment and also to work in that old tradition of-equal-parts recipes that gave us drinks like the Twentieth Century and the Corpse Reviver #2.” Jon Hughes

gaz sez: This baby cries when she hits the back of your throat, and she fair wails when she hits the tummy. What’s she crying about: She’s seldom witnessed such a fine balance in a cocktail before. Lots of thought went into this one.
