The Parisian Standard
Who would have thought foie gras would end up in your drink? Add duck fat-washed gin, pear brandy, salted duck fat, and compressed pear brûlée to make an aromatic cocktail. With notes of citrus, elderflower, juniper, and honey, the florals round out the distinct flavor of savory duck. Served on the rocks, it's a cocktail you won't forget. Made by mixologist Jeremy Lake of Playa Restaurant.
