A negroni is a classic gin cocktail, combining gin, sweet vermouth and refreshingly bitter Campari. We find ourselves often going back to this classic, but also enjoy experimenting with variations, including substituting Wigle Rhubarb Liqueur and Wigle Pomander Orange Bitters for the Campari.
The classic martini is one of the drinks that everyone likes just so. It is important to note that this does not serve to replace that crisp martini shaken from a London dry gin. Our gin has a heavier body with warmer flavors than the crisp combination of juniper, coriander and citrus. Rather than just a nod to a dry vermouth, our gin welcomes a healthier dose. Experiment with different dry vermouths — we prefer Dolin.
The martinez is a classic gin drink, often made with an old tom gin. Our dutch style gin has a heavier body with warmer flavors than the crisp combination of juniper, coriander and citrus, echoing many of the qualities of an old tom gin. The gin, sweet vermouth, cherry syrup and orange bitters makes for a decadent gin cocktail
This cocktail is inspired by one we found written up by Kelso Norris in Imbibe. As part of the write up, Kelso mentions that Ray Charles would request coffee and genever prior to a performance. It is an interesting combination, but pairs really well and echoes some of the indulgence of tiki cocktails.
A gin and tonic is one of the easiest and best known gin cocktails. There are also a number of different tonics available today, all with different flavors. You can adjust the amount of tonic to make the drink more gin forward or to extend it to an even longer drink. You may already know your preference. Some prefer a lime wedge, but others prefer lemon.
