Hayman’s Old Tom Gin, celery bitters,
fresh lemon, tonic, salt
According to Storia Cucina’s former beverage director, Matthew Boudousquie, this drink is like if a gin and tonic got a PhD. “Or like if it left Alabama and went to New York City,” to put it another way. Perfect for those who don’t like the taste of strong alcohol, this refreshing elixir is light, crisp, and goes down easy. Notes of celery and fresh lemon give it a crisp springtime taste, with a little complexity from the salt. There’s a hint of sweetness without a sugary aftertaste. Served over ice and topped with a slice of dehydrated lemon as cheerful as the rest of Storia Cucina, this drink is sure to put a smile on your face as it transports you to the Italian coast. – Becky Mandelbaum
