Day 101, Cocktail 100

Yipee!  The 100th cocktail…only 265 more to go!  To celebrate the milestone I’ve selected an original recipe.  This one goes back several months after I had just acquired my first bottle of Domaine de Canton.  The ginger flavor of the Canton seemed a natural to feature in an Asian inspired cocktail.  Plymouth gin was what I started with as a base (although Hendricks, with its cucumber flavors would work just as well).  The Canton was a given…but what else?  How about sake?  It’s dry, slightly floral scents and flavors might work well.  Indeed, they all worked marvelously together!  This cocktail is a great companion for sushi or tempura dishes.

  Huiquin

  • 2 oz Plymouth gin
  • 1 oz Yaegaki sake
  • 1/2 oz Domaine de Canton

Combine the ingredients in your shaker and shake, shake, shake.  Strain into a chilled coupe, garnish with pickled ginger wrapped around a water chestnut or lychee and enjoy!

By the way, I was always a Mary Ann man myself.  Which were you?  And you gals out there, Mr. Howell, the Professor, the Captain or Gilligan?

Cheers!
