Nothing like a crisp gin gimlet to forget about life for a minute. My buddy @gregmayer always takes great care of me when I go in to @academiaaustin down on 4th. I like to throw him at least one curve ball a night and spring not-so-classic recipes at him but ultimately I come back to the tried-and-trues before I close my tab.
What about a classic Gin & Tonic?
In may of this year, we’ve attended the Gin & Rum Festival in Lucern🇨🇭
One of those moment when you can approach small producers, talk directly with the creators, and of course, try one and every bottle you encounter.
Through the visits, we’ve discovered one small producer which meant a lot to us. They grow the herbs in many different fields, and once harvested, there’s a distillery truck coming to their place to create a very unique Gin. It’s called Edelwhite 57, and they come from Lucern, Switzerland.
Despite a tremendous taste, this gin has another cool feature; when mixed to water or ice, it looses it’s transparency and becomes sort of white’ish.
So today’s Gin & Tonic is made of @edelwhitegin & Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic 🍸
In an ice filled tumbler glass, add both ingredients an stir gently:
4cl of Gin #edelwhite
Top up with #fevertreemediterranean tonic
Garnish with a lime wheel 🍋
1.0 oz. Light Rum
1.0 oz. Dark Rum
1.0 oz. Lime Juice
0.5 oz. Cointreau
0.5 oz. Orgeat Syrup
Mint sprig for garnish
Lime wheel for garnish
Shake all the ingredients except the dark rum. Pour shaken ingredients into a glass filled with crushed ice. Pour over a spoon the dark rum.
We would like to thanks @the_gentrybartender for letting us to reshare their special Gin And Hibiscus Swizzle for permitting us to share this post. “Gin And Hibiscus Swizzle”.
I love using hibiscus as a sweetener in a cocktail as it never comes across too sickly and also adds an element of sharpness and I’ve yet to find a gin cocktail that St Germain doesn’t work in.
London Dry Gin// St Germain// Hibiscus Syrup// Lemon Juice// Lavender Bitters.
Some rules need to broken sometimes.isn't it???!!!!
Who can say no to a strawberry??
We like to thanks @cocktaildetour for permitting us to share this post.
When Jillian Vose made a surprise visit to bar 20hundra5 in Stockholm last year, at the very same evening we were guest judges in a cocktail competition there, we were quite excited!⠀
Having previously featured several of Jillian's cocktails in our feed we've been holding on to this one, the Warehouse C, for a while. Because it couldn't be more fitting to post this one than today, on Swedish Midsummer Eve, the strawberry fiesta day of the year. ⠀
In the Warehouse C there might be only one single strawberry, but that one alone turns this cocktail into a summery temptation. Combined with orgeat, lime and cinnamon syrup it is almost a tiki drink. Sweet and refreshing at the same time.⠀
1,5 oz bourbon⠀
0,75 oz lemon juice⠀
0,25 oz lime juice⠀
0,25 oz orgeat⠀
0,25 oz cinnamon bark syrup⠀
0,25 oz ginger syrup⠀
1 dash aromatic bitters⠀
Muddle the strawberry in a shaker. Add all the other ingredients and shake with ice then strain into a coupe. No garnish Jillian says, we disobeyed and decorated with a strawberry. It is midsummer after all!⠀
