It’s Been A Long Week: One Blue Slip


As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make yourself a glass or two, on us —  you deserve it.

With the L train partly shutting down and Williamsburg becoming yesterdays news– Greenpoint is the place to be these days. Luxury apartments at the waterfront One Blue Slip in the neighborhood offer one-of-a-kind Manhattan skyline views while detracted from the whole bustle-and-hustle of the city. One Blue Slip, cocktail version, is the signature of the building served at the Grand Republic Cocktail Club. Residents of the building even have a specially-designed coin to order the drink. At the crossroads between a traditional gin-and-tonic and the Southern French medicinal pastis, the night only starts here…


  • Muddles Mint
  • 1.5 oz Naval Strength Gin 
  • 0.5 oz Pastis
  • 0.5 oz Lemon Juice 
  • 0.5 oz Simple Syrup 


  • Shake with ice and strain into a tall glass. Top with Ginger Beer. Garnish with mint and lemon wheels. 

Cheers from Brooklyn!
