24 Drinks: 24 Sour

Cocktail Culture’s going to keep the gin drinks coming with “24 drinks with Beefeater 24,” a warm-weather series that’ll stretch through summer and provide you with some delectably light cocktails.

Man, I’m a sucker for an egg white cocktail. Last week I shared the Sea Fizz cocktail, and now I’ve got another foam-topped summer treat to share. Bonus—the ingredients should all be relatively easy to get your hands on. Just make sure to shake the daylights out of this one with plenty of ice (so the egg white doesn’t deflate in your drink). It’s a keeper, for sure!

24 Sour

2 oz. Beefeater 24 Gin

1 oz. fresh-squeezed lemon juice

1/2 oz. Benedictine

1/2 oz Simple Syrup

2 dashes Angostura Bitters

1 egg white

Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with an orange wedge and cherry.
Enjoy!

24 Drinks: Chris Milligan’s Basil-ica Cocktail

Cocktail Culture’s going to keep the gin drinks coming with “24 drinks with Beefeater 24,” a warm-weather series that’ll stretch through summer and provide you with some delectably light cocktails.

This week, we’re featuring a cocktail from bartender Chris Milligan of Secreto Lounge in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here’s what Chris has to say about it:

“I named this drink in honor of St Francis Cathedral-Basilca here in Santa Fe. It is a great little drink, designed in a classic sense and uses fresh ingredients, which is the basis I try to use with all the drinks I make.”

The recipe is below but be sure to check out Chris’ own post about the cocktail on his blog, Santa Fe Barman.

The Basil-ica Cocktail (recipe and photo courtesy of Chris Milligan)

2 oz Beefeater 24

1/2 oz St. Germain

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

1/2 oz simple syrup.

4 large basil leaves

1 dash Peychaud Bitters

1 dash Orange Bitters (he uses Regan’s)

Muddle basil, lemon juice, simple syrup and bitters.  Add Gin and St Germain.  Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with Basil leaf and long orange twist.

To learn more about Chris & the great work he’s doing at Secreto Lounge, check out Colleen Graham’s recent interview with the bartender.
Cheers!

24 Drinks with Beefeater 24: The Golden Cup

Cocktail Culture’s going to keep the gin drinks coming with “24 drinks with Beefeater 24,” a warm-weather series that’ll stretch through summer and provide you with some delectably light cocktails.

This week I’m on a cucumber kick, so I’ll keep that going with the next drink in our “24 Drinks” series—The Golden Cup. It’s fresh (thanks to the apple, cucumber, and mint), light (thanks to the soda), and delicious (duh!).  And frankly, it’s gorgeous.

The Golden Cup – created by Charles Vexenat

2 ounces Beefeater 24

1 ounce Hiram Walker Orange Curacao

1 ounce Amontillado Sherry

1/8 Granny Smith apple (diced)

1 inch cucumber (diced)

Soda to top

Bruise apple and cucumber. Add ice and other ingredients. Stir and decant into a wine or Collins glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Cheers!
