In the Second Degree

Oh gin! I’ve waited all winter to pick you up from the store and order you in the bar, and it has been a long wait (Lou Reed sang a good blues about gin and how sad it is when its gone). Now your time is here though, here’s a take on a gin old fashioned:

  • 1.5 Bluecoat or similar gin
  • 2 splashes simple syrup
  • 2 splashes cognac
  • 1 splash orange juice
  • 2 dashes lemon bitters
  • 4-5 basil leaves

Muddle the basil and gin in a shaker, fill with ice, top with remaining ingredients, stir, and serve up. Garnish with a sprig of basil and orange twist for a smooth, slightly sweet creation.

    Does this mean we are getting bluecoat back in?
