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.

Lions Tail

2 oz. bourbon
½ oz. pimento (allspice) dram
¾ oz. fresh lime juice (~1 lime)
¼ oz simple syrup
1 dash Angostura or orange bitters

(Tweak pimento dram and lime juice to taste)

(Can drop the simple syrup and replace bourbon with rum)

(a dash of Benedictine DOM also rounds it out well)

Gin Rickey

Gin Rickey

DC's signature drink, the Rickey, is "an airconditioner in a glass" as Columbia Room's Derek Brown puts it, and fiendishly simple. While the original uses bourbon, I prefer the gin version.

In a highball with ice, add in:
The juice of a key lime (and both shells, or the juice of 1/2 of a normal lime and a dash of simple syrup or an orange syrup)
2-3 oz of gin - and, for DC's own drink, use Green Hat, DC's own gin.
fill the glass with sparkling mineral water (pellegrino works well)

Dark and Sandy

A cousin of the dark-and-stormy, the dark-and-sandy is what happens when media frenzy meets frankenstorm.

In a lowball with ice, mix:

Juice of half a lime (or one key lime)
2 shots of gin
Top with ginger beer
