How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.


Redcurrant bunch laid across rim


Bready genever is aromatised with sherry and kirsch while red currant syrup provides the main flavour with its richness balanced by lemon juice.


A riff on the classic Artist's Special, which is based on Irish Whiskey. The only change is to use Dutch genever in place of whisky – hence the name.
