Playing How To Make Tarragon Gin Lemonade | John Cusimano

This cocktail from John Cusimano was inspired by French Chef Jacques Pépin. Rach calls it "tarragon lemonade for grown-ups."

For a meal straight out of the Left Bank, check out Rach's recipe for Chicken with Tarragon Cream Sauce, Green Beans with Shallots, and Rice Pilaf.


  • A few leaves fresh tarragon
  • About 4 ounces gin or vodka
  • About 2 ounces Lillet Blanc
  • Simple syrup, to taste
  • About 2 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • Edible flowers, for garnish (optional)


Serves: 2


Muddle some fresh tarragon at the bottom of a shaker. Add the gin, Lillet Blanc, a drizzle of simple syrup, and the lemon juice, fill with ice, cover, then shake vigorously before straining into 2 glasses. Garnish with flowers, if using.  

Always drink responsibly.
