Gin

My current favorite gin is a tie between CapRock Organic Dry (Colorado, http://www.peakspirits.com/index.php) and Green Hat (DC, http://greenhatgin.com/). Those have somewhat limited distribution - more broadly, The Botanist or Damrak are fine and juniper-forward. In the easy-to-find category, Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray are solid, Plymouth is smooth and well-regarded. Back in the DC region, there is also Catoctin Creek (Virginia, http://catoctincreekdistilling.com/), which is a bit "wetter" and amazingly botanical.

Satan's Whiskers

Satan's Whiskers

This tastes like a screwdriver gone wrong, and not in a good, interesting way. Perhaps eliminate the OJ and up the bitters?

1 ounce gin
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce orange liqueur (try Grand Marnier or orange curaçao)
1 ounce fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 dash orange bitters

Combine the ingredients in a Boston shaker or cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain the contents into a chilled cocktail glass.

Ramos Gin Fizz

Gin Fizz

This rather complicated drink nonetheless is amazingly tasty. Would be great as a "foam" on top of a G&T.

2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 egg white
1 ounce heavy cream
1 dash orange bitters or 1/2 teaspoon orange flower water (A. Monteux in a little blue bottle comes recommended)
about 2 ounces of seltzer (optional)

Put your serving glass and the bottle of your whipped cream maker in the freezer to chill.
