Super easy



For 1 Person(s)


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/4 ounces passion fruit syrup or puree (if using puree, the sweetness may need to be adjusted)
  • 1/2 ounces Orgeat
  • 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 barspoon St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
  • 2 dashes Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas’s Own Decanter Bitters
  • Several sprigs fresh seasonal herbs and citrus zest, for garnish

Showgirl Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients, except the herbs, in a mixing glass and shake vigorously with ice to chill. Strain into a highball glass or tiki mug filled with crushed ice, and garnish with a “headdress” of herbs and citrus zest—mint, basil, lemon verbena, lavender, kaffir lime, edible flowers—whatever you have on hand. Give this beauty what she deserves.
