This cocktail was created for the 2011 Lab Zero holiday party. During 2011, Lab Zero moved from Pier 38 to Pier 9, and this cocktail celebrates our salad days at the old pier. Pier 38 is near Distillery 209, a distinctive gin with bold flavors. During our time at Pier 38, we had many English visitors who gifted us with a dazzling array of high-quality single-malt scotches; this cocktail includes a splash of the smoky, peaty flavor of Laphroaig. The bright scent of English cucumber freshens it all up.
