Author Notes

This drink can be repurposed in a half-dozen ways: pour it over ice and top with tonic or stir it with ice and strain it neat; build the drink in a rocks glass or shake it with simple syrup and a whole egg for a flip, or mix in a fruity vinegar for a shrub. They all work on this understated, refreshing drink. —Nigel
