A change in the seasons means a change in the menu at The Cocktail Club, one of Charleston, South Carolina’s most-established spots for prohibition-style libations. New on the menu: The Right and Wrong, a truly welcome springtime addition.
If you’re not a gin drinker, this cocktail could change your mind about the botanical spirit (and TLP’s April feature will open your eyes too). But if you are a gin drinker, be sure to let your companions have a sip—if you can manage to let this libation out of your hands.
At first sip, The Right and Wrong is light, floral and refreshing—thanks to Hat Trick Gin’s botanical notes and the grounding sweet-bitter perfume of Cocchi Americano and Fee Brother’s Grapefruit Bitters. Honey sage syrup and Jack Rudy Small Batch Tonic add extra delicate sweetness and bubbly citrus goodness.
All that’s missing is an outdoor patio. Luckily, The Cocktail Club has one of those.
