The Illuminati, XS( Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun / March 28, 2012 )
How to make the Illuminati
3 oz. Hendricks Gin
1 oz. Cointreau
Splash of lemonade
Tonic to taste, or glow preference
Combine all ingredients over ice. Stir, garnish with a slice of lime and cucumber.
The Illuminati, a citrusy version of a traditional Gin and Tonic, takes advantage of the black lights at the bar in Mt.Vernon's XS and gives the drinker something of a bonus - it glows. Quinine in the tonic water has a fluorescent effect (The More You Know), so the more tonic, the brighter the glow.
