The Velo created by musician and author James Teitelbaum made it to the finals in a 2009 St-Germain cocktail contest, according to Jeff Berry´s Beachbum Berry Remixed. The rare combination of gin, passsion fruit syrup and Peychaud´s Bitters made me very curious and I can tell you this drink is awesome!


3/4 oz. lime Juice, 1/2 oz. Passion Fruit Syrup, 1 oz. St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, 1 and 1/4 oz. Gin (Beefeater preferred), 4 dashes Peychaud´s Bitters


Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.

    Shook up one of these this evening and am currently sipping and enjoying! Not too sweet. Just enough sourness. I like!

    • I am glad that you liked it! 🙂

      Hey there – Thanks for giving my recipe a try. i see from your photo that you used Monin passionfruit syrup. I like to make my own from Goya passionfruit pulp, sugar, and water. Check out my latest book, Destination: Cocktails if you haven’t done so yet! Thanks – JT

  2. Hi James,

    Great thanks for dropping by and for commenting. I am very honored!!

    In deed, I have realized already that making my own syrups is one of the next important steps for creating better drinks. So a good passionfruit syrup will be one of the first projects.

    Your drink called my attention immediately. The Velo brings together my passion for gin and my excitement for Tiki drinks in such a wonderful way.

    Your book “Destination: Cocktails” is a Must Have for me now!
