This is the perfect cocktail for those who are more comfortable drinking vodka than other spirits. The Gypsy has both an approachability and a complexity that I found very surprising. I suggest trying this one for yourself and using it to ease friends into the world of cocktails.

This cocktail is featured in Paul Clarke’s excellent cocktail recipe/history book, The Cocktail Chronicles: Navigating the Cocktail Renaissance with Jigger, Shaker & Glass.
