Categories: Behind the Bar

Yesterday we met Jim Meehan, bartender at New York speakeasy PDT. Today he shares with us the recipe for the Green Deacon, a drink included in The PDT Cocktail Book. According to Meehan, the cocktail's based on a recipe in Stan Jones' Complete Bar Guide called the Rosy Deacon. One night in fall 2008, Meehan served it to a friend, who suggested that something was missing. The green fairy fit the role perfectly.

The ingredients:
1.5 oz. Plymouth gin
1 oz. grapefruit juice
¾ oz. Plymouth sloe gin
Pernod absinthe rinse

How to make it: 
Combine ingredient in an ice-filled shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a chilled, Absinthe-rinsed glass.

FYI: Don't expect your drink to come out looking like the one in the picture, as that was a different drink on offer that night.
