From the Huckleberry Bar in New York comes a cocktail recipe that will have you reminicising about summer. A light, refreshing and easy to drink cocktail, Article 57 also comes with an interesting story behind it’s name.
Says Andrew Boggs, Owner/Operator of Huckleberry, of how Article 57 was named:
The name of the drink comes from when we were negotiating our lease. Huckleberry Bar almost lost the space we’re now in due to conflicts over the ‘Article 57′ portion of the lease. We spent so much time talking about it we ended up adopting the name for a cocktail we had just put together.
A summer-time cocktail seems to fit in perfect right now
- 2 oz Citrus Vodka ( We infuse ours in house but any citrus vodka should work ).
- 1/2 Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Simple Sugar
- 1/2 Young Ginger Juice ( Pureed and Strained )
*Combine and shake all ingredients. Pour into a Collins Glass and top with ‘Q Tonic’. (Regular tonic will work but ‘Q Tonic’ is much more elegant and balanced. Can be found in most high end groceries. ) Garnish with a slice of lemon and serve.
