Best Gins in 2013: Bombay Sapphire

Try Fig & Olive bartender Jorge Luis Flores’s Pear Blanche cocktail, which highlights Bombay’s citrus and almond flavor profile.

Jorge Luis Flores
Bartender, Fig & Olive
Favorite Gin: Bombay Sapphire
Why: “I like it because it goes down smooth; you get a hint of almond and citrus at the same time, followed by juniper.”
Buy for Home: $24.99, 750 ml; Varmax Liquor Pantry, 16 Ave, Port Chester (914) 937-4930;
Enjoy at Restaurant: Pear Blanche, made with Bombay Sapphire, St-Germain, fresh pear purée, and fresh squeezed lemon juice, garnished with a mint leaf and a light pinch of ground pepper. “This refreshing cocktail is a big hit with our female clientele. The mint and pepper help to bring all the flavors together, while the pear purée gives it that touch of natural sweetness that doesn’t overpower the gin.”
