Shuck N’ Jive

Leanne Favre | Brooklyn, New York

illustration cocktail

Leanne Favre’s seaside Martini, the Shuck N’ Jive, served at Clover Club in Brooklyn, is an homage to her Florida roots made with an oyster shell–infused vodka. The vodka is rounded out with a touch of Scottish gin, then stirred with a healthy amount of manzanilla sherry and dry vermouth. It’s best enjoyed with an oyster sidecar.
