The Dovetail Cocktails: Part 1

We would like to thank the Dovetail boutique for having us last Friday. We had a great time. To continue with the pictograms, below is one of the cocktails we served at the event, the Rose Rickey.

The Rickey is a cocktail that generally consist of gin, lime, soda and little or no sweetness. For the party, the Rose Rickey was in nice contrast to our other cocktail, the Rosemary Collins, because of its tart and floral notes versus the sweeter, herbal flavors of the Collins. It also had a very subtle pink color because of the bitters.You should be able to print out the above as a take away for your home bar.

The Rose Rickey
2 oz Dry Gin
1 oz Lime Sour
1 tsp Rose Water
4 drops bitters

Shake above with ice and strain into Collins glass. Top with soda and garnish with a lime.

P.S. Don't be afraid of the egg whites. Adding a protein like an egg or cream, mellows out the citrus for a smoother taste. Plus, if you do a dry shake first (i.e. a shake with no ice) and then add the ice you can get a bitchin' froth. Just make sure to use fresh, organic eggs.
