SENLIS Cocktails, created by Clare Ward (@cocktails_by_clare), Bar Director @Hippo in Los Angeles
The lovely Clare Ward, Bar Director at Hippo in Los Angeles, created two custom cocktails to share with us, inspired by our SENLIS florals and the gardens we long to wander these days.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, you can taste some of her artful cocktail creations for yourself - Hippo is offering to-go cocktails and delicious takeaway food! A friendly reminder to support your local restaurants and bars with take-away or by purchasing a gift card if you can, they’ll thank you for it when they’re able to reopen.

Julia Child's Reverse Martini
“The best part is you can have two” - words to live by in this time of happy hours in quarantine. This was reportedly Julia child’s favorite drink, and with good reason. It’s only three ingredients and you can put it over ice in any glass you like.
5 parts good dry vermouth
1 part gin
Pour wet ingredients over ice and stir. Finish with a lemon twist.
