It’s time for a new Cocktail. I think we focused a bit too much on food dishes and posts and forget about the word of drinking and mixing. To be honest I am a real Lover of good Cocktails, mostly of a simple and dry one. Iker is more the sweet ‘n creamy type. I love the scenario when we are having Drinks on a Bar, because the waiter always mixes our orders, they don’t expect men drinking Coladas. He is just a little Lady!
The last weeks I noticed that I really miss working as a Barkeeper, mixing Cocktails, shaking, watching people drinking, mixing again, shaking again, watching again…
But not working as a Barkeeper doesn’t mean, not drinking Cocktails, right? And how says no to a nice drink after dinner, is like having dessert, it closes the circle.
What you need: Shaker and Ice cubes and…
- 4 cl Hendricks Gin (you can also use any other Gin)
- 2 cl Grand Marnier
- fresh Rosemary
- 2 cl fresh Lemon Juice
- a big tbsp Orange Jam ( we use a home made, but you can also buy one)
- 5 cl fresh Orange Juice
- fill up with Sparkling Water
How to mix your perfect Jam ‘n Rosemary:
It’s actually very simple and a lot of fun: Pour all the liquids plus rosemary in a shaker, add ice and start shaking. You can also smash the rosemary gently in the shaker before adding the rest of the liquids. Shake for a few minutes and strain it in a glass, filled with ice. A slice of Orange and a rosemary branch finish the drink. Lay back, cool down and get drunk….no kidding…enjoy!
