Need Ideas for A House Cocktail (Old Time)

vinosnob | Mar 5, 2007 03:58 PM

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.
