London-based mixologist Tony Conigliaro, who self-identifies as more artist than scientist, takes cues from molecular gastronomy to devise his cocktails. His signature Nettle Gimlet recipe is quirky, yet grownup—a conceptual but very drinkable reinterpretation of the Gimlet proper.
40 ml Beefeater Gin
20 ml Nettle Cordial (available in supermarkets and online)
- Combine the gin and cordial in a cocktail shaker and stir over cubed ice.
- Strain into a small, chilled glass and finish with a lemon twist.
