Servings 1


  • Martini Shaker


  • 1.25 ounce Gin
  • .5 ounce Falernum
  • 1 ounce Lillet Blanc
  • 1 ounce Lemon Juice


  • Shake the gin, falernum, Lillet Blanc and lemon juice with cubed ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime twist.


Falernum (pronounced fə-LUR-nəm) is a syrup liqueur from the Caribbean best known for its use in tropical drinks. It contains flavors of ginger, lime, and almond, and most often also of cloves or allspice. It may be thought of as a spicier version of orgeat syrup.
An aperitif wine, Lillet is made from Bourdeaux grapes along with macerated fruit liqueurs, which gives it a pleasantly fruity, but not overly sweet, character. While Lillet Blanc (the white version) is delicious on ice, with a twist of orange or lemon and a splash of soda, it's also a brilliant cocktail ingredient.
