Cocktail Musings with Beefeater Summer Edition

You finally got yourself that bottle of Beefeater Summer Edition Gin, right? Oh, come on, summer is nearly half over! It’s time to get on your A-game and pick one up before this limited edition bottle is no longer available.

But what will you make with this light and airy gin? I’m so glad you asked. Beefeater Summer Edition recently sponsored an evening in the Mixoloseum chat room with members of the CSOWG for Thursday Drink Night. With this summery gin as the muse, we had some fantastic recipes developed throughout the evening. Here’s a few cocktail ideas to put that bottle to good use; however, I would be sure to revert back to these guys’ own posts, as they explain their own madness behind their musings.

Pinky Nutscadero, By Camper English
2 oz Beefeater Summer Edition
1 oz Castries
4 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters.
Shaken, served up.

Thames River, By Frederic Yarm
1.5 oz Beefeater Summer Edition
.75 oz Pimms #1
.5 oz lemon juice
.25 Crème de cassis
.25 simple syrup (1:1 ratio syrup and water)
Shake/strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

I’m also excited to share that I will be attending the Beefeater Welcome Reception at Tales of the Cocktail on Wednesday. If it’s anything like the display they had as part of the Opening Gala at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic, I’m sure the combination of Beefeater, Beefeater 24, and Beefeater Summer drinks will be off the charts!

    Beefeater Summer Edition Gin, another gin that either is not making it to Chicago or will make it here quite late…or is simply incredibly difficult to find…
    I did finally find Beefeater 24 though…

    So sorry to hear you’re having a tough time finding the gin, SSS. I’ll email you directly if I can find out who in the Chicago-land area is carrying the product.

    I do know that you can order it online from this NYC retailer – http://www.astorwines.com/SpiritsSearchResult.aspx?p=2&search=Advanced&searchtype=Contains&term=&cat=2&pricerange=3&producer=Beefeater&style=1_19

    Hope this helps a bit!

      That link and vendor is near perfect. They ship to this part of the woods and that is all I need. Thank you!
      Now if I can only remember the name of this particularly good sake I had in Seattle…maybe these folks at Astor will carry it as Chicago is severely lacking in sake vendors!
