Online Exclusive: Paper Moon Cocktail Recipe

This month’s cover story features the beautiful home of Chris and Gigi Rouland. Their latticed sunroom, whimsically dubbed the “ladies drinking parlor,” includes a black-and-gilt chest that holds all the essentials for making the homeowners’ favorite cocktail, a Paper Moon. Nick Hearin, a spirits specialist at H&F bottleshop, shares his original recipe, below, for this refreshing libation.

– 1.5 ounces of Silver Tree Vodka
– Half ounce of St. Germain
– Fever Tree Bitter Lemon Soda

Build over ice in old fashioned glass; stir; top with bitter lemon soda, garnish with basil leaf
