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

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 😨

Another Irish whiskey cocktail to help through the winter. ⠀
This is definitely a martini on the sweeter end. ⠀
The Orange bitters gives this drink a nice kiss of citrus that takes it a different direction than a Manhattan. It’s a simple but delicious cocktail. Would love to try making it with other whiskeys like @teeling_whiskey or @prizefightwhiskey Another amazing photo by @reikomasutani !!!
Cheers to a lovely martini!⠀

A friend made a request for a whiskey drink so I’ve decided to do a classic.⠀
I found out that there are 3 Manhattan recipes in my book.⠀
This is the classic straight up Manhattan.⠀
There’s just no reason to mess with something good.⠀
Per usual though I am made aware of the size of the cocktail.⠀
It is easy to have 2 cocktails before dinner when they’re only 3 oz.⠀
Lately we wouldn’t settle for anything less than 10 oz.⠀
My how times have changed.⠀
