Have been big for a decade but the ones I read about sound odious. I'm giving up my generation when I say that the only ones I can understand are a gin martini, a Rob Roy, and something from my you

You could always try a real classic, the 19th-century Bijou Cocktail.   But please, for the love of gin, don't call anything with chartreuse in it a martini!

Had several Fescue Rescues post-golf at Erin Hills. Recipe is:

 

 

2 Oz. Jameson (I would add more), 3 Oz. Ginger Beer, 1 Oz. Lemonade and a slice of lemon!

For summer cocktails on the tarter side, there's La Paloma - grapefruit soda, tequila and lime juice. I use the San Pellegrino Pompelmo, but use the one you like best.

 

I'm also a fan of the Badminton Cup. This is something they used to serve at Greyz and I finally figured out how to replicate the drink: 1 ounce lime juice, .75 oz simple syrup, 2 ounces of gin, 4 or 5 slices of cucumber, 7 or 8 mint leaves.

The drink has a lot in common with the cucumber collins.

I am going to try to get this printed, I think. The size is confusing, though – the PDF version indicates that the print size is 21.6528" x 14.7917", which doesn't correspond to any size I'm familiar with.

For Manhattans, I like to think it still is...and I like Martinis this way too.
