Crown of Castile

Eryn Reece | New York

In creating this drink for a Meals on Wheels charity event focused on chefs and cuisines from the Mediterranean, the New York–based Eryn Reece opted for Plymouth Gin as her base. The drink’s brightness plays well with the tartness of Giffard Passionfruit and the herbal, spicy notes of Ancho Reyes Verde.
