Cocktail Recipes Tonight

Bought myself a new bottle of gin. The juniper is overlaid by apricots, plums, and honey. It kind of reminds me of a fruit soured beer. Excellent mixed with seltzer. Not sure how it will work in a cocktail.
Summer gin.

Yesterday's cocktail...

Rhubarb Gimlet

2 oz gin (Greenhoook American Dry)
3/4 oz lime
3/4 oz rhubarb syrup*

Shake, strain into coupe

* Rhubarb syrup (easy-peasy Morgenthaler method)
equal parts chopped rhubarb, sugar, warm water, whizzed in a blender for a few minutes to a puree and strained through a fine strainer (and cheesecloth/chinoise/whatever, as you like)

It might not be too bad in a fitty-fitty, as long as you're using good tonic.

Do you have the Dorothy Parker gin? Try it with that.

I do and I shall!

Meanwhile, just now, a modified Sun King (fka my own submission in the Fruit Bat series)

2 oz rye (Old Overhold bonded)
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano + 1/4 oz yellow Chartreuse (replacing 3/4 oz blanc vermouth)
1/4 oz Suze
1/4 oz maraschino
2 dashes orange bitters

It's a little richer but stilllll good.

Here's how it was made at Pegu:

2 oz. gin

1 oz. sweet vermouth

1 barspoon Luxardo

2 dashs Ango

Garnish - lemon peel

I used a Martinez recipe from an SF cocktails book I got a few months ago. Note the ratio of vermouth to gin--I'm not complaining.

  • 1 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Carparo Antica in my case)
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 barspoon maraschino liqueur
  • 1 dash Angostura
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • Lemon slice garnish
