Queenstown’s newest neighbourhood local Odd Saint lends us the recipe for a suitably outside-the-box yet delicious signature cocktail.

Just like our food, we aim to be a little bit different at Odd Saint, so all our cocktails are a twist on the usual. We’ve named each one after a patron saint and Dorothy (shortened to Dot) is the patron saint of gardeners, expressed by way of fruit trees. Odd Saint is surrounded by well-established trees, adding to the ambience of our sun-dappled patio space.

Dot's sour


  • 45ml gin
  • 75ml grapefruit juice
  • 15ml rosemary-infused syrup*
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 1 egg white (30ml)

Add all ingredients to a Boston shaker over ice and shake hard for one minute.

Pour into your favourite short glass and garnish with a dehydrated orange peel or grapefruit slice (for the perfect dehydrated slice, thin is always best).

*We make our own infused botanical syrups – make yours with equal parts sugar and water boiled until slightly bubbly and syrupy. Cool and transfer to a jar or bottle with your herb of choice and leave for a day or more to bring out the herbaceous flavour. Experiment with time (or even thyme) depending on your taste preferences.
