Another drink made with new Bolivian acquaintances La República gin and Yerbasanta vermouth. They make the perfect power couple in this globetrotter drink.
Gin is so good in long-drinks we think. That tangy taste goes well with low-ABV ingredients such as vermouth or sherry, and then just a splash of simple syrup sweetens things up. Lemon juice balances everything and some heavily carbonated water gives just the right fizz.
