Yig & Tonic

 2 oz London No.1 Gin
3/4 oz Suze
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Haint Absinthe
3/4 oz Liber and Co. Spiced Tonic Syrup
Soda Water
2-3 dashes Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Boker’s Bitters

Build first 5 ingredients in an ice filled Copa de Balon glass (Or a bulbous red wine glass) that is garnished with a long, snake-like Lime peel (Horse Neck). Top with Soda Water, give a little stir and dash the bitters onto the drink.

In the Lovecraftian Mythos Yig is the Father of Serpents, though with the flavor profile of botanical earthiness from the Gin and Suze I was tempted to name this the Ygg & Tonic. However, naming it for a great and terrible gallows tree would take this out of the Lovecraftian Mythos and place it in the realm of either Norse or Westeros.
