2 oz Bluecoat Gin
0.5 oz Ramazzotti Amaro
0.5 oz Lemon Juice
1 egg white
4 dashes West Indian Orange Bitters

Shake everything but the bitters really hard for about 10 seconds without ice. Then add a couple cubes and shake for an additional 10 seconds. Strain carefully, making sure to get all of the good egg froth from the bottom of the shaker. Dash bitters on top of the finished drink.

NOTES: Jen certainly loves her egg white drinks, that’s for sure. Super citrusy and pretty damn tasty. If anything, a little too much gin and not enough Ramazzotti. Might try 1.5oz / 1 oz next time.

1.5 oz Bluecoat Gin
0.75 oz Earl Grey Syrup
0.5 oz Lime Juice
0.5 oz Grenadine
1 tsp Creme de Violette
2 dashes Rhubarb Bitters

Shake ingredients with ice, strain into coupe.

NOTES: Pretty much the same as the earlier version of this drink (possibly my favorite we’ve come up with so far), but slightly adjusted for the homemade grenadine.

1.5 oz Bluecoat Gin
0.5 oz Earl Grey syrup (recipe here)
0.5 oz lime juice
0.25 oz grenadine
1 tsp creme de violette
2 dashes Rhubarb bitters

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Serve up.

NOTES: maybe use slightly less violette. Pretty tasty overall, especially for a gin drink. Would also like to make my own grenadine rather than use bottled. I think it would make a difference. Also possibility: skip grenadine and increase tea syrup. I think I need second opinions on this one.

NOTES 2: Decreased Creme de Violette from 0.25 oz to 1 tsp, and it was better. Also added 2 dashes of Rhubarb Bitters. Changed the overall flavor slightly, but in an interesting way. Updated recipe to reflect.

2 oz Bluecoat gin
1 oz Homemade strawberry basil syrup (see here)
0.5 oz lime juice
1 diced strawberry

Muddle ingredients in the bottom of a mason jar, fill glass with crushed ice, and top off with club soda.

NOTES: not the most complex drink idea, but surprisingly refreshing, and I don’t generally like gin. Next time, try muddling basil leaves with strawberries for stronger flavor.
