Green Deacon

Main Spirit Gin
Difficulty Easy
Technique Shaken

Based on the Rosy Deacon, a classic cocktail from the Stan Jones’ Complete Bar Guide, this drink was reimagined and rounded out by Jim Meehan at PDT in New York around 2009. With Gin, Sloe Gin & Ruby Grapefruit Juice, it is the Absinth wash that gives the drink it’s ‘green’ name.
