Watching a bartender mix up a ton of different ingredients can be really fun, and you’ll be able to drinks from around the world that you may have not even known existed, but making a drink all on your own in the comfort of your own home can be pretty spiffy too. It’s no fun to make a cocktail that takes an hour to produce; try making something quick and simple, with a yummy taste for all to enjoy. Making a drink from gin will be pretty easy and tasty so try a ‘Sherry Martini’ to start; combine 2 oz. of gin and 1 oz. of fino or manzanilla sherry in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well until chilled, and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. A ‘Green Ghost’ will surely be a delight for your friends; you will fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add 2 oz. gin, ½ oz. Green Chartreuse, and ½ oz. of fresh lime juice. Shake well until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. It’s tasty and really fun to make.
Gin goes well with so many different drinks’ an ‘Obituary Cocktail’ is wonderful; you will combine 2 oz. of gin, ¼ oz. dry vermouth, and ¼ oz. of Absinthe, stir well until chilled and serve into a chilled cocktail glass. If you like colorful drinks, try a ‘Negroni.’ Simply combine 1 oz. dry gin, 1 oz. Campari, and 1 oz. sweet vermouth in an old-fashioned glass filled with ice, stir to combine, and then twist a thin piece of orange peel over the drink for aromatics and garnish. It’s pretty and smells really good. Don’t forget about the ‘White Negroni.’ This super simple cocktail is made by combining 1 ½ oz. gin, 1 oz. Dolin Blanc vermouth, and ½ oz. Cocchi Americano into a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir until well chilled, and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. It looks like a simple drink, but it is extra tasty. Enjoy your new favorite gin recipes.
