Recipe: Longitude Line

The Longitude Line comes to us from Kaikyo Distillery in Japan, where Hatozaki whiskeys and the new 135 East gin are produced. We’ll be reviewing 135 East shortly. In the meantime, here’s the delightful signature cocktail they designed to showcase 135’s best features.

Longitude Line
1 oz. 135 East Gin
1/3 oz. Akashi Tai Umeshu (plum-infused sake)
1/3 oz. hibiscus syrup
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. egg white or aquafaba

Dry shake without ice. Then shake with ice and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a dried hibiscus flower.
