Geb’s Reviver

Carley Gaskin, Hospitality 201 | Chicago

This zero-waste drink is named after the Egyptian god of the earth, Geb, and is intended to look like a matcha latte. “Nothing was thrown away for the cocktail, which I thought was pretty great,” says Carley Gaskin. This drink won her Bombay Sapphire’s 2018 Most Imaginative Bartender title, so the judges obviously agreed. This version, however, is a simplified rendition.

Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice, hulls reserved
  • 3/4 ounce pineapple-lemon oleo saccharum (see Editor's Note)
  • 1/2 ounce pineapple juice, skin reserved
  • 1 pinch matcha powder

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
  2. Pour into a rocks glass over ice.
Editor's Note

Pineapple-Lemon Oleo Saccharum:
Spent lemon hulls
Reserved pineapple skin
1/2 cup sugar

In a medium-sized container, combine the lemon hulls, pineapple skin and sugar and let sit for 24 hours. Remove the solids, bottle and refrigerate for up to two weeks.
