Sloe Ride


1 ½ ounces Hayman’s Sloe Gin

½ ounce Campari

½ ounce lemon juice

½ ounce Domaine De Canton

5 muddled mint leaves

Ginger ale to top

Garnish: skewered cherries

Invented in England in the 1880s, the gin-based liqueur Pimm’s was typically mixed with carbonated lemonade. The Pimm’s Cup eventually found its way across the pond where New Orleans’ Napoleon House bar favored ginger ale and a cucumber garnish to great acclaim. At Hot Tin, LeBas muddles mint leaves with sloe gin and Campari, infusing the refreshing cocktail with bitter, herbal notes for a modern riff.


To a 12-ounce collins glass, add first five ingredients. Then, add ice and top with ginger ale and skewered cherries.
