Hallelujah IUD

Toby Maloney, Loverboy | New York

“Avèze has a great weight to it,” says Toby Maloney of the gentian root-based liqueur. “It’s round and unctuous and brings gravity and heft to cocktails.” Here, he uses it in a simple, stirred combination of gin, Dolin Blanc and a dash of Peychaud’s bitters. “[Avèze] is a wonderful foil for the botanicals in gin,” he explains.


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces gin, preferably Citadelle
  • 1 ounce Dolin Blanc
  • 1 ounce Avèze
  • 1 dash Peychaud's

Garnish: expressed lemon peel
