Not that I need another excuse to enjoy a cocktail, but I've been working on a "house" cocktail. OK, "working on" is an over-statement; I was bored one night.
My first attempt was gin (sapphire), ginger infused simply syrup, fresh lime juice and a splash of soda. It was alright, but not spectacular.
What would be a cool recipe that incorporates gin and something old school like bitters?
Also, what brand of gin is sublte and better for mixing? Although I love sapphire, it's fairly potent and tends to stand out in a cocktail.
