Cocktail Recipe | Wish You Were Here | The Forbidden Cocktail

The Forbidden Cocktail from the You Are Here* cocktail collection is inspired by grapefruit brûlée, the mid-century classic dessert. This gimlet serves refreshing, caramelized and nutty notes. Make your own at home, plus the Fountain of Youth, via our new cocktail kit, available for curbside pickup in May. Each kit has the goods for 2 of each cocktail. Visit our Instagram @RedbirdLA to watch Bar Director Tobin Shea guide through the recipes. Or, enjoy it the DIY way at your leisure. Instructions will also be included in the kit. Availability and offering subject to change.

1 1/2 oz. Bimini Gin
3/4 oz. Lustau Oloroso Don Nuño Sherry
3/4 oz. Lemon
1/2 oz. Giffard Crème de Pamplemousse
1/2 oz. rich syrup 

Combine all ingredients in a shaker, add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist and enjoy.
