The Alaska Cocktail, which utilizes gin, Yellow Chartreuse and orange bitters, was Fetherston’s jumping-off point for this drink with Chablis-like chalkiness and salinity.

Three Cocktails You Just May Mistake for Wine
  • 1½ ounces Plymouth Gin
  • ½ ounce Aylesbury Duck Vodka
  • ÂĽ ounce Yellow Chartreuse
  • 1 teaspoon G.E. Massenez Pear Williams Eau-de-Vie
  • 1 teaspoon Giffard PĂŞche de Vigne
  • 1 ounce verjus blanc (available from online retailers)

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Add ice, and stir until chilled. Strain into a wine glass. (To make a larger batch, add 1 ounce filtered water per serving, and refrigerate without stirring.)
