Slightly sweeter than London Dry gin, but dryer than genever, this 'missing link' gin may or may not be the inspiration for the Tom Collins.
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A juice used in some cocktails for its tart and acidic properties. Grapefruit juice can be pre-squeezed and kept fresh for many days like orange juice, unlike lemon and lime juice.
A peach flavored French liqueur; 16% ABV. Commonly drank as an aperitif or in cocktails.
A syrup with ginger root flavoring. Make it yourself: Combine 120mL fresh ginger juice, 100g superfine sugar (about 2:1.5 by mass). Or you can also boil some ginger slices in a simple syrup mixture. We always assume a 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
A concentrated syrup made from sugar water and cinnamon bark. You can make this yourself by adding a few cinnamon sticks to your simple syrup making process. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
A concentrated aromatic bitters made in Trinidad from water, ethanol, gentian and other herbs and spices; used in many classic cocktails like the Manhattan.
Indian Pale Ale is a beer style that developed in England for export to India. Brewed from pale malt, this beer is known for its bitter flavor (high on the IBU scale) and medium to high alcoholic content.
Small, round, green citrus fruits. Commonly used in many cocktails for its rind or its acidic taste (6% acid total; 4% citric, 2% malic, some succinic acid).
Shake all the ingredients except the beer with ice, then strain into a collins glass and fill the glass with ice cubes. Top with the beer and garnish with the lime wheel. #shake #ontherocks
“I developed this drink when super-juicy fruit-bomb IPAs were at the peak of their popularity. Here, I tried to mimic those flavors in something that resembles the vintage tiki cocktail, Cobra’s Fang, but with a gin base instead of rum.” -Jeremy Oertel
