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.

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.

Basil Martini

This recipe comes as a way to use Lillet Blanc after a Vesper, originally from Todd Thrasher of Restaurant Eve, via http://backyardbartender.blogspot.com/2011/05/blanc-lillet-blanc...)

10 basil leaves
3 ounces Lillet Blanc
1/2 oz gin
1 oz simple syrup

In a shaker, lightly muddle the basil leaves. Add the Lillet, gin and simple syrup and fill the shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Sip lovingly. Don't forget to store your Lillet in the fridge after you're done - it'll keep longer than way. (It is wine, after all.) Cheers.

French 75

White Lady

The French 75 (Soixante Quinze) has a disputed history, and recipe, with some factions calling for cognac instead of gin. You can read more on the history at Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_75_(cocktail) ) or an updated version (featuring local gin from Catoctin Creek here: http://goodbooze.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/the-friday-tipple-midn...

I've modified it to be a bit more gin-and-lemon strong, balanced with the honey and a nice sparkling prosecco. A rosemary simple syrup also adds a nice twist.

  • 1.5 oz. Gin
  • 1 t orange blossom honey or a simple syrup
