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.

Incognito Mojito

 

Incognito Mojito

 

1½ oz C.W. Irwin Bourbon
¾ oz Simple Syrup
¾ oz Lime Juice
Club Soda
2-3 Fresh Mint Sprigs
Lime Wedge for garnish

Remove only the mint leaves from two of the mint sprigs. Begin by adding only mint to the bottom of a shaker tin. Gently muddle mint without breaking it up too much. Now add lime juice, simple syrup and ice. Give the ingredients a 15-20 second shake. Strain over fresh ice into a highball glass. Top with club soda water and garnish with remaining mint sprig and lime wedge.

Here is a great play on the classic mojito. As the temperatures increase outside, it’s nice to have a few options to mix up for patio sipping or for guests. This cocktail shines bright, as the flavor of the C.W. Irwin Bourbon is still present with a touch of mint and lime.
