Lester & Earl: Cocktail Recipes

Ink Gin cocktails on the menu at Lester & Earl, Palm Beach. 


“The aviation was invented around 1916 by Hugo Ensslin, and traditionally used Crème Yvette. Hard to find, and when I did finally find it I thought that the commonly substituted Crème de viollette actually worked better.”


  • 40ml Ink Gin
  • 20ml Lemon Juice
  • 10ml Luxardo Maraschino
  • 5ml Crème de Violette

Shake all ingredients and fine strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cherry.


Inking Spritz

“We called the owner over when we tasted this, because this just begs to be put on the summer menu. It would be perfect in a cocktail jug as well.”


  • 30ml Ink Gin
  • 30ml Aperol
  • 60ml Marlborough Sav Blanc
  • 5ml Elderflower cordial

Build & stir in a wine glass of cubed ice. Garnish with an orange twist and wild strawberry.


Smoke on the Water

“I saw this in a movie once. I thought it was totally strange to float pastis over a martini, but when I tried it with Ink it worked so well and looks seriously cool.”

Smoke on the water

  • 60ml Ink Gin
  • 15ml Lillet
  • 10ml Pastis

Stir & strain Ink Gin and Lillet into a chilled martini glass. Slowly float the pastis over the surface and watch as the ‘smoke’ dances over the surface of the drink.
