Throughout Cocktail Week 2012, we'll have several of the area's favorite cocktail destinations whipping up special concoctions devoted to Eater readers. All you have to do is head over to the bar and ask for the specific cocktail. At Room 11, that cocktail is the Gins N Things.
General manager Jessica Woods explains that the cocktail pays homage to the retail tenant that used to be housed in the space where Room 11's expansion now lies: Jeans N Things. The drink features some of the ingredients that the restaurant is highlighting at its new bar next door, particularly aperitifs and digetifs. Bartender Rob Pierangeli came up with the blend of bitter accents, gins and balancing ingredients for the drink.
1 oz. Ransom Old Tom Gin
1 oz. Cocchi Americano
.5 oz Averell Damson Plum Gin Liqueur
.5 oz. Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
3 dashes Luxardo Maraschino
1 dash Bitter Truth orange bitters
Stirred, served up with an orange twist garnish.
The drink is available this week at Room 11 for $11.
