David Lebovitz’s “Ménage à Quatre” Cocktail
This pandemic punch is a heady blend of gin, citrus, and Lillet.
Like the classic Negroni, which has three ingredients sharing one communal space in equal quantities, this less-conventional four-way—adapted from David Lebovitz’s book Drinking French—is equally alluring.
