Happy hot August nights to you all! My, we’ve had a lot of Rum lately over here at HomeBarGirl, haven’t we! Well, now that National Rum Day is over, I’ve got a tasty albeit unusual Gin cocktail for us.
The inspiration for this cocktail was “What can I do with Carpano Antica + Old Tom Gin, while keeping it Tropical?” I made the drink, realized that it was missing something, turned around to look at my glassware, and there was the St. George Absinthe Verte! Thanks again you beautiful bottle of Absinthe you!
This cocktail is tart & refrescando, complex yet mellow, a bit astringent, with some nice spices from the Carpano Antica and Falernum.
Never Trust A Sailor
- 1 1/2 oz Hayman’s Old Tom Gin
- 3/4 oz Carpano Antica
- 1/4 oz Velvet Falernum
- 3/4 oz Lime Juice
- St. George Absinthe Vert Rinse
Rinse a coupe with Absinthe and chill. Combine remaining ingredients over ice and shakety-shake-shake. Strain into coupe. No garnish.
Thank you magnificent ingredients, you are all so very tasty. Cheers.
