Martini Cocktail (Medium)⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 1 Dash Orange Bitters⠀⠀ 1/2 oz. French Vermouth⠀⠀ 1/2 oz. Italian Vermouth⠀ 1 1/2 oz. Gin (@brooklyngin)⠀⠀ Stir well with cracked Ice and strain into 3 oz. Cocktail glass. Serve with an Olive.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ I believe I found my new favorite Martini!⠀ This was a delicious martini because of the wonderful balance of the 2 vermouths and the orange bitters.⠀ It gave it a very crisp and refreshing flavor and the citrus of the orange bitters worked very well with the citrusy @brooklyngin.⠀ The finale of the salty olive soaked in the martini gives your taste buds a wonderful salty/sweet sensation.⠀ I really am appreciating the differences of the bitters used in each of the cocktails.⠀ It’s made me realize the importance of bitters.⠀ This is definitely a martini that should be ordered more than once!⠀

Jack Rabbit Cocktail

3/4 oz. Gin @farmersgin
3/4 oz. French Vermouth⠀
1/4 oz. Apricot Nectar Liqueur⠀
1/4 oz. Triple Sec @cointreau

Shake well with cracked Ice and strain in to 3 oz. Cocktail Glass.⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀

This gin cocktail was surprisingly good.⠀ The apricot liqueur was a little worrisome but it actually added a hint of spring to the cocktail that otherwise would’ve been dry.⠀ It paired nicely with the orange in the triple sec.⠀ This is a must when Easter comes around.⠀ Farmer’s Gin is a great option for this cocktail as well.⠀ It definitely helps bring all of the floral and fruity tastes together.⠀ If you can’t get your hands on the Apricot Liqueur, Apricot Brandy would definitely work as well.⠀ It will make the drink a bit more boozy but the nice Apricot flavor will still come across.⠀ Cheers!⠀ ⠀⠀

Taking a whiskey break and going back to gin!
This gin cocktail was very delicious!!
Tis the season of citrus and it’s the perfect time to make this orange cocktail.
If you want to try to make this even sweeter I would give a blood orange a shot.
Just make sure you pick a citrusy gin like the Kinobi Gin.
It paired nicely with the orange!
Will be drinking this a lot in the future!
Maybe every time I get my paycheck 😨

Juice of 1/4 Lemon
1/4 oz. Triple Sec
3/4 oz. Rum – @papaspilar
3/4 oz. Gin – @monkey47_dry_gin
Shake well with cracked ice and strain into 3 oz. Cocktail glass

 

 

 

 

In preparation for Halloween decided to make this fun little cocktail.
It tastes a lot like the Judge Jr. Cocktail but since it doesn’t have powdered sugar in it it’s not so sweet.
Also the lemon and Triple Sec gives it more of a citrus flavor.
As I make more of these cocktails, I’m turning into a Gin & Rum combination convert.
Highly recommend!

Eclipse Cocktail

Eclipse Cocktail

Eclipse Cocktail

1 oz. Gin (Darnley’s View Gin)

2 oz. Sloe Gin (@spiritworksdistillery)

1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

Put enough Grenadine into 4 oz. Cocktail Glass to cover a ripe Olive.

Mix the above ingredients in Ice and pour gently onto the Grenadine so that they do not mix.

 

 

I decided to try this cocktail out the day before the big eclipse last month.
It was a very interesting cocktail.
I was really excited for a sloe gin cocktail because they taste so good.
As I read the instructions I was alarmed with the olive task.
I was skeptical that the combination of the sweet Grenadine and the olive.
It weirdly worked! It has that salty sweet aspect to it and it was actually really tasty.
The mistake I made was the olive I put in was a large one so I had to pour a lot of Grenadine in it to cover it like the instructions.
So I recommend a smaller olive but it’s also because I don’t like drinks that are too sweet.
I’d love to hear what you think about this cocktail!

Coronation Cocktail

Coronation Cocktail

3/4 oz. Gin (@pickeringsgin)

3/4 oz. Dubonnet

3/4 oz. French Vermouth

Stir well with cracked ice and strain into 3 oz. Cocktail glass.

 

This was a very different spin on a gin cocktail.
Since the Dubonnet is a wine based apertif with herbs and spices I thought it would pair nicely with a spicy gin like Pickering’s Gin.
This was a surprising cocktail because it ended up tasting like Port wine.
A very dangerous, light and spicy Port wine.

Highly recommend as a party cocktail in the fall!
