For the Left Bank recipe we use a cold martini glass. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, the elderflower liqueur and white wine and stir. Stirring is prefered to shaking. Because shaking shatters the ice and dilutes the drink. Strain the mixture into the martini glass and decorate the Left Bank cocktail with a lime slice.
This is the cocktail of the day on August 13 when international left handers day is celebrated.
