Friends, the Gin Wife again. I am here to present to you an invented cocktail of mine, something with lots of rich, spice-ful flavors which I find to be perfect for the holiday season.
Dare I Drink a Plum?
2 parts Greenhook Ginsmith’s Beach Plum Gin (or any Beach Plum Gin, this is what we had around, and honestly, what was the inspiration for this drink.)
1 part Soda Water
1 half part Art in the Age’s Root Liquor (Or dashes of spiced bitters, something with good, dark, rich flavor. Something molasses-y, perhaps!)
1 generous lemon (any brand) squeeze
Combine all ingredients in a shaker, and shake it up! Pour over ice. Simple! Add a dash of cinnamon if you are feeling it.
I have a half a notion that this would also taste good heated up, but the other half of that notion is worried that the richness of the Beach Plum liquor would overwhelm, well, everything. I will have to update when I am brave enough to try.
Aaron will be discussing the Beach Plum Gin in more detail soon! As for my notes: I liked it. I like plum and plum-like flavors.
