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 most common fruit juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; pure citric acid. Lemon juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
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.
A Piedmontese Moscato wine base Italian amaro infused with cardoon (similar to artichoke) and blessed thistle; 17% ABV. It is aged for six months in new oak and can be substituted for vermouth or sherry in cocktails.
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.
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).
Combine all, except the beer, in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled then strain into an ice-filled Collings glass. Top with the IPA and garnish with a lemon wheel. #shake #ontherocks
