A consistently lauded gin coming out of Canada, the electric yellow Ungava gin is hard to miss on store shelves. It's made exclusively with botanicals from Ungava Peninsula of Nunavik, Quebec, so it has a personality that's different from what you'd find in B.C. If you're wondering what you can make with this colourful and unique gin, try this rosemary Gimlet.

1 sprig fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish
1/2 oz. herb liqueur, like green Chartreuse
1 ½ oz. Ungava gin
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. ruby grapefruit juice
2 tbsp sugar, or sugar cane syrup
1 egg white
1 slice lemon, for garnish

In an Old-fashioned glass, fold the rosemary sprig in two.

Add the herb liqueur and let stand.

In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, add all remaining ingredients, except for the slice of lemon.

Shake vigorously until you obtain a rich foam.

Light up the herb liqueur sitting at the bottom of the glass with a match or a lighter, lightly charring the rosemary sprig.

Put out the flaming alcohol, and pour the contents of the shaker into the glass.

Garnish with a slice of lemon.
