DC Club Cocktail


DC.Club.Cocktail.03-01-2015Happy Friday to you!

Here’s a little cocktail I concocted, using Green Hat gin, from the DC-based distillery New Columbia Distillers. I think I created this drink last December or January, and the fruit I chose then was the tangerine, so easy to find good ones in winter.

Not sure why I didn’t post this way back when I painted it. I think I wasn’t happy with the blotchy sumi ink — for some reason the ink I was using earlier this year was rather runny.

If I were making this right now, I might put in watermelon juice, although I worry that the Fernet Branca might overpower it.

DC Club:

2 oz. Green Hat Gin

1/4 oz Grand Marnier

1/4 oz Fernet Branca

1 oz tangerine juice

1/4 oz simple syrup

Shake vigorously with ice and pour into a cocktail class, no ice.

Garnish with a grapefruit twist.
