Pied a Terre's Bartender, Matheiu Germond, shares an outstanding cocktail recipe sure to grace any sophisticated shindig. The mellow oakiness of the Calvados is superbly assisted by the Fever-Tree Naturally Light Tonic and punchy vodka

Method
1.
Add enough ice cubes to come halfway up the shaker. Pour in the vodka, calvados, verjus and gomme
Verjus
Verjus or verjuice is a very acidic, sharp juice made by pressing unripe grapes, it does not contain alcohol. White wine and a small dash of lemon juice is a good alternative, but always try and use a good quality unfiltered variety for cooking or cocktails
2.
Seal with a lid or Boston glass and shake well for 30 seconds. Fill a highball glass to the top with ice and use a Hawthorne strainer to pour into the prepared glass
3.
Garnish with a wedge of green apple and serve with a long straw
