COCKTAIL OF THE MONTH by No. 308

THE

Monkey’s Paw

Owners of No. 308, Ben Clemons and Alexis Soler, are good pals with the owner of St. Germain. Their friend is a jet-setting jokester with an affinity for Family Guy’s evil monkey (you know, the one that hides in Chris’ closet). Somehow, whenever the three are together, that monkey comes to the forefront of conversation. So in honor of this cocktail’s main ingredient—St. Germain elderflower liqueur—they chose the name “Monkey's Paw.” But don’t let the monkey scare you away. This concoction is sweet, bubbly, boozy, and gulpable—a perfect recipe to satisfy St. Germain and St. Valentine.

1 oz Beefeater Gin 1 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur 1 oz Gran Classico Bitter Cava topper Grapefruit peel

Stir all ingredients, and pour into a coupe glass. Top with Cava or your favorite bubbly. Garnish with a grapefruit peel. Enjoy responsibly. -Ben Clemons, No. 308
