We’re rounding out our May cocktail series with a sophisticated sipper whose recipe comes straight from famed San Francisco bar, Trick Dog! If you want to impress your guests at your next dinner party, definitely bust this baby out for the cocktail hour.


The Fortunate Few 

2 oz gin {we prefer locally distilled St. George Spirits}
3/5 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz Lillet Blanc
1/2 oz lemon juice
3 kumquats
1 sage leaf

Cut kumquats in half and lightly muddle at bottom of shaker. Add all ingredients and shake with ice, well. Pour into glass {this can be served in an up glass, but we went with coups to up the fancy factor} – add kumquat slices. Garnish with sage leaf.



This cocktail harnesses seasonal ingredients and bright citrus flavors that are perfect when enjoyed on a hot summer afternoon. Yes, the various components are a bit esoteric, but if you’re a budding mixologist, you’re definitely going to up your game with Lillet Blanc and Yellow Chartreuse in your repetoire!

We can’t wait to hear what you think of this guy!!
