Old Maid ($10)
Filed on the menu as a "Modern Classic," the Old Maid is a quick shake of Plymouth gin, lime, simple syrup, cucumber, and mint, served over a large, hand-carved cube.
Police and Thieves ($10)
The name's a nod to The Clash (and reggae singer Junior Murvin before them), and the drink sums up the Gin Palace ethos: it's playful, though created with careful technique. It features Plymouth gin shaken with lime, pineapple, and grapefruit juice, and a hint of cinnamon that lends the whole thing a refreshing tropics-in-wintertime vibe.
Shangri-La Swizzle ($10)
A play on old-school swizzle drinks featuring Old Tom Gin, raspberry, Amaro Ciociaro, pineapple juice, lemon, and Averell, a gin liqueur infused with Damson plums. Despite the double-down on gin, the flavors remain subtly herbaceous and beautifully balanced.
Love on a Farmboy's Wages ($10)
"The drinks are fairly simple, but that doesn't mean we dumb them down," says Chadwick. "We just aim for bold, bright combinations over some ornate, 14-ingredient play on Yellow Chartreuse. It's been done." His "Love on a Farm Boy's Wages" (another rock & roll nod, this time to XTC) is a bright, powerful punch made of raspberry, Swedish Punsch, Dorothy Parker Gin, Lemon, and Santa Teresa rum.
The MI5 brings out Plymouth gin's darker side with a stir of Applejack, Cynar, and Dolin Sweet Vermouth.
