A floral gin sour that is not only refreshing, but incredibly simple to make at home!
Makes 2 cocktails
3 ounces (6 tablespoons) Koval Gin (or Greenhook Gin or favorite gin)
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) Violette Giffard
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup
Orange peel or edible flowers for garnish
Squeeze lemon juice and make sure all ingredients are laid out. Measure each ingredient and put them in the shaker with ice. Shake and strain into two coupe glasses.
Garnish with orange peel or edible flowers.
Simple syrup is equal parts cane sugar and water.
Fresh squeezing citrus in shaken drinks is preferred.
We recommend Koval Gin due to it’s lovely floral nature or Greenhook Gin due to it’s herbaceous flavor. However, if you have another favorite, switch it out!
For the Violette Giffard, we highly recommend Giffard as the best brand to buy. It is acute and perfect for mixology.
We prefer drinking the Violet straight up; but, if you prefer drinks on the rocks, go for it!
Don’t like gin? Switch it out for vodka!
