About the Drink

“The most common question I get with this cocktail was what does the name stand for? The answer is a Damsel in Distress… a reference to Princess Peach, the often imprisoned princess in countless video games. This light and flavorful cocktail features a lemongrass infused genever, one of the most interesting spirits I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Genever, the grandfather of gin, is a unique blend of malty, aromatic and woody that is a lot of fun to play with in creating cocktails.”
