Cocktail Hour: Gin Daddy

October 15, 2011

The Gin Daddy is a refreshing cocktail courtesy of Lauren at Teroforma blog.  Well, I love gin cocktails and so I had to include this cocktail recipe too.  Personally, I think the Gin Daddy tastes almost like a long Tom Collins, but then add a swig of rosemary and rim of rosemary/sugar and it’s a herbaceous variation of old Tom Collins.

The Gin Daddy

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • 1.5 oz your favorite gin
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz limoncello
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • Splash of soda water

Garnish & rimmer -white sugar, fresh rosemary sprigs, rind of one lemon

HOW TO MIX THIS DRINK

  1. Prepare your garnish and rimming plate.  Strip a 5″ piece of rosemary 3/4 of the way (save the stripped stem for stirrer). Finely chop the rosemary and rind of one lemon. Pour 1/4 cup white sugar on a plate and mix with lemon rind and rosemary.  Wet the rim of your glass with lemon rind and dip in sugar mixture.
  2. In a cocktail shaker mix all ingredients except for soda water. Shake for 20 seconds and pour over lots of ice. Finish off by adding a splash of soda water.
  3. Garnish with your rosemary twig …et voila!

Santé!
