Review:

There's a suitable subtle monastic influence to this complex, gin-based, most learned of cocktails.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2007 by John Deragon at PDT bar in New York City, USA. Perhaps named after the Pokémon "Cloyster", this is a gin-heavy riff on the earlier (circa 1970) Cloister cocktail.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.6 standard drinks
  • 20.54% alc./vol. (41.08° proof)
  • 22.6 grams of pure alcohol
