Seafood

Drink: Tokyo gimlet

Ingredients: Aviation gin, TY KU sake, fresh lime, yuzu, cucumber

Our take: Notes of nori are present on the nose, while the cucumber cools and the black pepper adds complexity and zip. Yuzu is refreshing and floral when combined with the sake, which adds floral perfume.

Location Details Industry Public House

American

Drink: Classic gimlet

Ingredients: Hendrick’s gin, lime, simple syrup, lime wheel

Our take: Classic and clean with a slightly sweet edge, this cocktail is a standard for a reason. Notes of rose and cool cucumber make this drink booze-forward without being bracing.
