It was my ambition to create cocktails for all three Crawley sisters (because original cocktails for the whole cast, while admirable, might be a bit daunting). First up is Sybil, the youngest, and my (and maybe your) personal favorite. Sybil is so easy to like...she's sweet without being saccharine, headstrong, and a bit stubborn. For her, I created a cocktail with delicate, rarefied flavors (St. Germain and champagne) that's grounded with something a bit more everyman (London dry gin). The end product is sweet, lovely, and stronger than you'd expect.
Lady Sybil makes 1 cocktail 1 oz gin 3/4 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur brut champagne, chilled Combine the gin and St. Germain over ice. Shake and strain into a flute. Top with champagne.
