Gin, Batch #2

Batch #1, while mixable was dominated by coriander. I don’t believe the 2:1 juniper to coriander ratio plays correctly for a “dry” gin. Perhaps this historical ratio is better suited towards Genever style gins, which indeed is what it tasted like. However, it that the sweetness may have come from the not-so-neutral initial spirit.

Nocino

Emily made a batch of Nocino with this recipe this year to celebrate her birthday and we just finished bottling it tonight. The walnuts were a little ahead of us this year and may have been a little too mature. It is also a little citrusy and doesn’t have the depth that we hoped for […]

Milk Maid

3/4oz Nocino della Cristina 1/2 oz Galliano 1/2 oz Cointreau 1/2 oz citrus infused vodka 1 oz cream 1 egg white

Shake, with ice, serve in a cocktail class. Maybe with a preserved cherry or lemon twist spritzed around the rim.

We’ve been searching for a cocktail to features Nocino della Cristina but haven’t had […]

Mustapha Cocktail

1 1/2 oz. gin 1/2 oz creme de casis 1/4 oz fresh lime juice (not syrup, please – it’s sweet enough already!) 1 egg white a generous dash or two of Tabasco Sauce

Shake with plenty of ice and strain, serve up.

This is a surprisingly tasty cocktail and has been featured frequently since […]

I wanted to make something with the Cherry Heering (mostly because I just really like saying “Cherry Heering” because of the way it makes me want to say “Cherry Herring” which makes me think of swedish fish, which, really, taste-wise, is not far off) and I found recipes for Singapore Slings and variations of, from […]

Saint Revivers

When I first tasted St. Germain I wasn’t confident that we’d be able to mix it well. Too floral. Too tropical. Too different. But, very, very delicious; Emily’s been sneaking it neat. However, I read that it should work well in place of Cointreau. In comes the Corpse Reviver Variation #2, a fabulous drink featuring […]

hoop-la

1 shot Kelt Tour du Monde 1 shot Lillet Blanc 1 shot Grand Marnier 1 shot lemon juice

Shake with ice and serve up with a lemon twist. This is a slight variation on Oh Gosh!’s hoop-la. It’s a delicious cocktail although it wasn’t until I hit it with a dash of Angostura bitters […]

Edith Day

1 part Junipero gin 1 part grapefruit juice 1 t simple simple syrup, to taste 1 egg white

Shake vigorously in a shaker with a few ice cubes until the pain is too much to take. Serve in a cocktail glass or champagne flute. This is a plain, simple drink; I guess there is […]

The Bijou

1 oz gin 2/3 oz dry vermouth 1/3 oz green Chartreuse Splash of Campari lemon twist

Stir with ice and serve up. We tried this the other night since on a whim and were frankly disappointed; the Junipero Gin just didn’t blend well with the other ingredients. Perhaps a mellower, milder gin would have […]
