Recipe: Cured Tuna Crudo

True fresh-tuna aficionados, for the most part, eschew cooking their catch. Once the tuna has marinated for an hour, this simple and light recipe goes together in a jiffy, and takes full advantage of a fresh catch of either yellowfin or bluefin tuna.

Sipsmith VJOP gin, 1⁄2 oz. yellow Chartreuse, 1⁄2 oz. lime juice, 1⁄2 oz. pineapple gum syrup.This dish pairs well with the Ravenous Pig’s Great Expectations cocktail: 3⁄4 oz.
