Hey hay hayy girlfriends, and guys, and gender non-conformists! ( I listen to a lot of 2 Dope Queens podcasts) so I got a really awesome and pretty simple fall cocktails for you guys! Ready for the deets? Check it out! Check it out! Check it out!
I'm I the only one that thinks of the 'Check it out Girls' sketch from the Sonny with a Chance show? I was definitely there for Demi Lovato OK!
Recipes are for one serving (1 drink into a rocks glass)
1 part. Gin any preference keep it kind of neutral
1 part. Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
1 part. ginger ale
Splash. Fentimans Dandelion Burdock
4 dashes. Angostura bitters
Splash. of PRESS Blackberry Hibiscus seltzer (sub. club soda)
MAKING DA JUICE
Muddle your blackberries in a shaker (save a few for garnish)
Add one shot glass full of gin and Canton
Add ice to shaker, shake until well incorporated and outside of shaker gets cold and frosty
No need to strain! Pour mixture into glass, add ginger ale, Fentiman's and PRESS seltzer
Quick stir and then add garnish
I used Seersucker gin, its light with the juniper and spice so easier to make cocktails with. You can also use Boodles gin :))
*Cantonberry is the left drink, Ginger Lady on the right*
THE GINGER LADY
1 part Gin
1 part Domaine de Canton
3-4 dashes Angostura bitters
*1 part ground turmeric
*1 part ground ginger
*1 part ground cinnamon/nutmeg mixture (pumpkin pie spice)
*1 part ginger ale
Pickled ginger slices for garnish
MAKING DA JUICE
Add everything but ginger ale to cocktail shaker, add ice and shake until well mixed and until the shaker get's a lil' ICCCYYYY
*You can do about a 1/4 tsp of each spice, I really just used a small spoon and eyeballed the same amount for each one
Pour into glass top with ginger ale-----for less sugar you can use diet ginger ale, tonic, or just club soda.
Sprinkle cinnamon mixture on top, garnish with pickled ginger.
Surprisingly the pickled ginger was a very last minute add on and I'm very glad I used it! Super good, it's just like adding olives to a cocktail to be honest. You can find it close to the sushi making ingredients in the grocery store.
I had tons of fun making these! and the experimentation time, well it took me a few days to figure out the perfect recipe for my standards and they are muy delicioso!! Experimenting is fun!
