Ginuary 4th: Angler’s Cocktail.

Angler’s Cocktail

  • 60ml gin (I used Manly Spirits Coastal Citrus)
  • 15ml grenadine
  • 1-2 dashes orange bitters
  • 1-2 dashes angostura bitters

Stir with cracked ice and strain into an old fashioned glass over ice. Garnish with a lemon twist or a lime twist if you don’t have any lemons at home and you’re pressed for time.

Some googling also suggests the recipe should be shaken or stirred and strained into a cocktail glass. Maybe I’ll need to try this other version when I get home from dinner?

I have to admit, I’m pretty excited to have an excuse for a bottle of the Manly Spirits Coastal Citrus—@thepatronsaintofgin used it in her post yesterday, which is the whole reason I made the drink today (I’m very suggestible). It’s about time for me to have some new bottles to play with on the shelf, and I’d already been eyeballing this one. Botanicals are inspired by the Australian coast and its native pantry, the most notable being sea parsley! I’m interested to compare this to other coastal-inspired gins and see if there’s a noticeable theme to them…
