Our cocktail pairings dinner coming up on Saturday–so it’s game on in the Hearsay liquor lab this week.
2 ounces St. George Spirits Dry Rye gin
2 ounces Cointreau
2 ounces green Chartreuse
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce tangerine juice
Shake and strain into coupes. Garnish each glass with 3 fresh tarragon leaves.
Our friend Tom is kind of an all-or-nothing guy. In the last year and a half, he’s gone from being a sailing novice to an experienced single-handed ocean racer. And now he’s working up to an even bolder goal: he’s planning a solo sail around the world in The Pink Boat to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
I don’t know much about sailing (yet), but I do know a thing or two about cocktails. It seemed only fitting to contribute to Tom’s efforts in some small way by creating a signature cocktail for him. And tomorrow night (Wednesday July 27), Thermidor will help spread the word about Tom’s Pink Boat campaign by featuring this drink on their happy hour menu from 5-8pm. Stop by to meet the sailor, hear about his upcoming voyage, and enjoy a lovely beverage!
The Pink Boat
1 ounce 209 or Aviation gin
1 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce Campari
Shake and serve up with a twist of lime.
