Discover the cocktail recipes Montreal mixologist Lea Messier created with romeo’s gin
romeo's gin V gimlet
Meet the fragrant brother of the classic Gimlet: the OBLIQUE cocktail. We named this cocktail the OBLIQUE due to its complex flavours which are neither parallel nor at a straight angle. romeo’s gin V will shine right through this cocktail which is supported by ingredients complementary to its flavour profile: lime for lime, honey for honeydew and shiso to liven up the green grapes, releasing the distinct smell of a mountain meadow after a rainstorm. Created for the intermediate at-home bartender, you will need a bit of planning to execute this drink; but when you do, be sure to tag us so we can celebrate your achievement! #artofgin
