What was the inspiration behind this drink?

This is a riff on a classic Gimlet using both gin and vodka — we just gave it some tropical vibes by making a lime leaf and coconut cordial.

How does it taste, and why does it work for you?

This literally tastes exactly like it sounds. It's booze-forward with a sweet zingy floral finish.

Can you briefly describe the techniques behind the drink?

We vac pac and then sous vide lime leaf into a coconut syrup, then turn it into a cordial using an acid solution.
