Lifetime Ban

Dan Greenbaum, The Beagle | New York

This drink was created for The Beagle, a now-closed East Village bar that was noted for its outsize love of all things sherry. While the template for this drink is a reverse Martini (1 part gin, 2 parts vermouth), it gets added character by splitting the fortified wine component between vermouth and fino sherry.


Serving: 1

  • 1 ounce navy strength gin
  • 1 ounce blanc vermouth
  • 1 ounce fino sherry
  • fresh mint

Garnish: lemon twist

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
  2. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with a lemon twist.
