Gin Germain Cocktail


Mixing prohibition style beverages has been hobby of mine for while now.  Every since my husband and I went to Raines Law Room last winter with some friends, we have been trying to create similar style beverages. 

An important ingredient in prohibition style drinks are bitters. Recently I bit the big one and purchased an array of Fee Brothers Bar Cocktail Bitters.  It was a bigger purchase at $40 bucks but I scored six varieties of bitters.  We have been playing around with all  different bitter flavors, some have been great, others not so much.  This was my favorite concoction to date.  Its bright, citrusy, and slightly sweet. 

Gin Germain

2 parts gin
1 ½ parts St. Germain (elderflower liquor)
1 part fresh lemon juice
2 splashes of lemon bitters

Measure all ingredients into a tin filled with ice.  Rim outside of chilled martini glass with lemon reminisce. Shake and pour into a chilled martini glass.
