Tingle Gin Cocktail

The Tingle

IMG_8916

Tonight we had some Greek Chicken Pitas which included some refreshing dill and cucumber.  So we wanted to carry that note along and use the green peels of our cucumber. This was smooth with notes of ginger, cucumber and subtle celery all used to refresh or give your dishes a tingle. Also would be a nice way to finishing a meal.

4 oz of Tanqueray Gin
1 oz of Stirrings Gin liqueur
cucumber skins
Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray Soda

Mix and enjoy. Ahhhhh…

Cool as a Cucumber Cocktail

We had a spicy asian ramen dish so I wanted to make something that was fresh and cooling. I picked up a bottle of Stirring’s Ginger liquor and thought about cucumber, Cel-Ray and Ginger. Tanqueray and Titos Vodka seemed like they would be able to carry it without interference.

Really refreshing drink.

2 oz Tanqueray Gin
2 oz Titos Vodka
1 oz Stirrings Ginger liquor
Cucumber
Mint
Topped with Dr Brown’s Cel-Ray soda

Muddle mint and cucumber with liquors and shake with ice. Pour into an iced glass and top with Dr. Brown’s Cel-ray soda.

About 10 years ago my wife and I took an “award” trip to New York City. It was a really cool trip because we were given a nice wad of cash to spend each day over a long weekend. We tried so many amazing places. We read about a place that John Kennedy Jr frequented. Sorry but I cant recall the name of it. The waiter recommended a cocktail that was made with Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray soda. Celery Soda. Sounds awful but this cocktail blew me away. It’s haunted me for years.

Yesterday I went to Central Market because it’s Hatch Chili season and spotted Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray on the shelf. I bought them all. (4 six packs) and researched some recipes to see if I could recreate that NYC cocktail.  By George.. I did it. So this one is for John-John and his George magazine venture.

3 oz Titos Vodka
1.5 oz Lemon Juice
2 tbs sliced cucumber (about 3-4 slices and then quartered)
Topped with Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray

So light, fresh, crisp and refreshing.
