How to Make the Graveyard Tryst, a Gin Cocktail That Will Awaken the Spirits

In Depth

Welcome to Boozinette. This is the Graveyard Tryst.

  • 2 oz. dry gin
  • 1/2 oz. pink peppercorn syrup
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • In a small saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil.
  • Kill the heat once the sugar has dissolved.
  • Let steep for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Strain, contain, let cool and refrigerate. Use to sweeten with a bit of bite.
  • Muddle peppercorn syrup & three sprigs of thyme in a mixing glass. The end result should look gruesome.
  • Pour gin over the muddled massacre.
  • Stir like hell for 25 to 30 seconds.
  • Fine strain into a lowball over ice.
  • Garnish with a sprig of thyme and be wary of spirits that promise a good time.
