The Vesper Stonewall
Created by Jaime Rios, Bartender, Top of the Standard & Tavern on the Green
1.5 parts Lillet Rosé
1 part Tanqueray (or other juniper forward gin)
.25 parts Campari
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir for about 20 seconds with Kold Draft ice (or ten seconds with smaller ice).  Strain into rocks glass with “whisky stones” or large cube of ice.  Garnish with lemon twist.
This twist on the classic Vesper Martini embraces the triple berry flavors of the vodka. The ‘whisky stones’ not only visually pay tribute to the legendary Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement in NYC, but they also keep the drink cold without adding extra dilution. Here’s to history!
