Johnny’s Yelevator Cocktail Recipe

Published September 11, 2018 by

Mitch Nigl, bar manager of the speakeasy Johnny’s in Royal Oak, shares a spin on an old cocktail called a ‘puff.’

By Mitch Nigl

The Yelevator is a take on an old cocktail called a “puff.” The combination of the cream and the soda water create the “puff.” The flavor profile is an herbal, creamy, slightly sweet, gin and tonic, with hints of dill and cucumber.

INGREDIENTS

2 ounces Citadelle Gin

3/4 ounce Yellow Chartreuse

½ ounce tonic syrup

½ ounce heavy cream

¼ ounce lemon oleo

2 slices cucumber

2 sprigs dill

DIRECTIONS

Muddle the dill and cucumber in a cocktail shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients into the shaker and fill the shaker 3/4 full of ice. Shake vigorously for 8 to 10 seconds, and then double strain (with a Hawthorne strainer and a tea strainer) the contents of the shaker into a 9-ounce glass. Top with sparkling water (we use Topo Chico at Johnny’s). Garnish with a marigold flower and a dill sprig.
