2 oz Merrylegs Genever Style Gin
½ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Simple Syrup

Our Merrylegs Genever Style Gin makes a fantastic gin & juice cocktail. The Wild Card Absinthe wash in this drink provides a unique counterpart to the lime, highlighting Merrylegs’ botanicals of anise and lemon. Begin by preparing a martini glass with an absinthe wash. (Coat the inside walls of the glass by using a small pour or Misto of absinthe.) Combine Merrylegs Genever, lime juice, and simple syrup in a shaker tin with ice. Shake until cold to touch, then strain into prepared martini glass. Garnish with lime wheel.
