Half Way Round the World
Another drink made with new Bolivian acquaintances La República gin and Yerbasanta vermouth. They make the perfect power couple in this globetrotter drink.
Gin is so good in long-drinks we think. That tangy taste goes well with low-ABV ingredients such as vermouth or sherry, and then just a splash of simple syrup sweetens things up. Lemon juice balances everything and some heavily carbonated water gives just the right fizz.
