Sunday’s cocktail comes on a bad-weather-Monday!
However, are you ready for a summer series of fresh sours and punches? Being the White Lady still a true classic, my next drinks will come along much more creative with fruit, cucumbers and herbs muddled in the syrup and the spirits.
Ah? Do I see that some of you are raising the eyebrows?
Don’t worry, Paul Carr, an English composer and big aficionado of cocktail mixing, once taught me, that a good cocktail always and first of all has to be CLEAN (whatever that means). By intuition and knowledge I exclusively prepare CLEAN cocktails… Trust me!
How mix the White Lady:
2 parts gin
1 part Cointreau
1 part lemon juice
Mix in a shaker half full of ice, strain and serve in sugar-rimmed glasses (I took Muscobado sugar and added more ice).
