Old Maid


2 oz
A gin distilled in Plymouth, England. It is less dry than the more common London Dry gin, mainly due to more root ingredients that soften the juniper flavor.
1 oz
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.
0.75 oz
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
6 leaf
Aromatic plants used in cocktails as a garnish or muddled into the liquor to add a light fresh taste. Common in the Mint Julep.
4 slice
A refreshing tasting watery vegetable used in some cocktails like the Gin and Tonic. Some people say cucumbers taste better pickled.
1 sprig

Muddle the cucumber and mint with simple syrup. Add everything else, then shake with ice and fine-strain over one large cube into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with a mint sprig poked through a slice of cucumber. #muddle #shake #ontherocks
