Holiday Weekend Drinking

On the cusp of Memorial Day Weekend I thought I would post a couple of refreshing Cocktails to get you started with your weekend festivities.

I just finished this one as I type;

The Gin Swizzle

In a Collins Glass add

2 oz. Gin
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
2 - 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Club Soda

Swizzle with a bar spoon between palms
Garnish with a lime wedge

Interestingly enough you can substitute Rum, Vodka, Tequila etc.

The Bitter Dark and Stormy

In a rocks glass add
2 oz. Dark Rum
5 Dashes Orange Bitters Top with Ginger Beer or Ginger Ale Garnish with a Lime Wedge
Have a great Holiday Weekend Cheers

The Great American Cocktail

Found this in a book and thought it was worth sharing

The Great American Cocktail
Perhaps it's made of Whiskey and perhaps it's mad of gin, perhaps there's orange bitters and an orange within, perhaps it's called Martini and perhaps it's called again, the name that spread Manhattan's fame among sons of men;

perhaps you like it garnished with what thinking men avoid, the little blushing cherry that is made of celluloid, but be these matters as they may, a cheer confrere you are if you admire the cocktail passed along the bar.
