Gin + Juice

I was rollin’ down the street (on the way back from the store), laid back (with my mind on my honey tangerines and my honey tangerines on my mind)….and I thought hey, Snoop D-O-Double-G  has a good idea! Gin and juice.

This seemed like a perfect time to get out my snazzy blue bottle of Bluecoat American Dry Gin. The honey tangerine juice is very light and sweet, and it mixed well with the slight citrus in the Bluecoat. So… just the gin and juice would have been fine, but I was looking for a few more layers of flavor. Adding some Pimm’s No.1 and a little maple syrup did the trick.

Pour 1 1/2 oz. Bluecoat American Dry Gin, 1 1/2 oz. fresh squeezed honey tangerine juice, 1 1/2 oz Pimm’s No.1, and 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup over ice in a rocks glass. Stir and garnish with a half slice of honey tangerine. Refreshing and complex!  Cheers!

    • Hmmmm. If my memory serves me correctly, I got it a few years ago from Crate and Barrel. Not sure if they still have them, however. Hope you find them. Cheers!
