What a wild ride this year has been! That means you deserve to have the fruits of your labour. Nothing is sweeter than going into the garden and being able to try all of the vegetables you have babied and watched grow all spring and summer. This drink is an ode to the lushest gardens and orchards that grow on the 40 knots property and the life they sustain. It is a love letter to the summer and I’m hoping it inspires fellow green thumbs to put their palettes to the test. It is also a test for sustainability because I hate food waste. I knew from the start I wanted to use the brine liquid in my cocktail and give it a second life. Pickle brine has a true plus in the kitchen and after it’s gone the jar will house a plant! It's always about a full life cycle of products for me.
  • 1 1/2 ozs Langleys London Dry Gin infused with local cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 oz Ancho Reyes Poblano Chile Liqueur

Double strain neat into a Collins glass with 3 inch by inch ice cubes. Top with soda and garnish

bunch of Thyme and 2 pickled grapes on a pick.
Tomato Gin:
300ml Langleys London Dry Gin

Heat it all in a pot and then strain and chill for use.
