About this Cocktail

From The Guardian. We were initially skeptical, but it turned out well. Mom asked for a vodka variation, but this drink was definitely MADE for gin. Also, on the rocks, it looks like a glass of carrot juice with a big ass ice cube in it, so no pic for you! Guardian URL:

  • 1 2/3 oz gin
  • 1 2/3 oz carrot juice
  • 1 1/3 Tbsp sugar (or 2/3 oz simple syrup/gum syrup)
  • 1/3 oz dry sherry
  • 1 slice ginger, finely diced, or 1/3 oz ginger juice

Add all but garnish to a shaker, and shake vigorously with ice, especially vigorously if you’re using granulated sugar instead of syrup.

Decant to a martini glass, up, or into a double old fashioned with a big rock in it. If you’re using diced ginger, double-strain into the glass.

Garnish and serve.
