Jilted Gin

 

Jilted Gin
2 oz Merrylegs Genever Style Gin
½ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Simple Syrup
About a bar spoon of Wild Card Absinthe
Lime wheel

 

 

Our Merrylegs Genever Style Gin makes a fantastic gin & juice cocktail. The Wild Card Absinthe wash in this drink provides a unique counterpart to the lime, highlighting Merrylegs’ botanicals of anise and lemon. Begin by preparing a martini glass with an absinthe wash. (Coat the inside walls of the glass by using a small pour or Misto of absinthe.) Combine Merrylegs Genever, lime juice, and simple syrup in a shaker tin with ice. Shake until cold to touch, then strain into prepared martini glass. Garnish with lime wheel.

Two classics join forces for this tasty treat — the Sazerac and the old time soda fountain milk shake. To prepare, muddle CW and gelato in a pint glass or shaker tin. Then separately fill a Collins glass with ice and pour absinthe over. Add muddled CW and gelato and top with club soda. Garnish with chocolate if desired.

The delicious gelato used for this recipe is one of Oregon Spirit Distillers’ collaborations with Bontà Natural Artisan Gelato, made locally in Bend, Oregon. Be sure to check them out!

Absinthe Sour

 

Absinthe Sour

 

1½ oz Wild Card Absinthe
3⁄4 oz Simple Syrup
Juice from 1⁄2 a lemon
3⁄4 oz Egg White

A salute to National Absinthe Day, here is a recipe for the traditional Absinthe Sour using Wild Card Absinthe. A Double Gold Medal Award and Best of Category went to Wild Card in 2014 at the International Spirit Competition in San Francisco. This cocktail is well-rounded with distinct presence of absinthe producing delicate notes of fennel, star anise and wormwood.

To make the Absinthe Sour, fill cocktail shaker with ice, add all ingredients and shake vigorously. Shake very hard to get the ingredients to emulsify and form a layer of foam on top of the cocktail. Garnish with Lemon Twist.
