The Arugula Gimlet

Arugula is a spicy leaf so naturally it makes a perfect accompaniment to gin. If you cannot get your hands on any Arugula, try some spinach or cilantro instead.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 cup arugula
  • Lime wheel (for serving)


Combine gin, lime juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill halfway with ice, then top with arugula. Cover and shake vigorously until the outside of shaker is very cold, this should take about 20 seconds. Strain through a very fine-mesh sieve into a coupe glass; garnish with lime wheel.
