Don’t Mind If I Do
At first glance, we were a little skeptical of this recipe from Christopher Flett at Vancouver’s Pourhouse. It’s got the screwiest proportions, with a massive amount of lime juice, tons of sweet, and a relatively small portion of alcohol.
But we gave it a try, and you should, too – the blending of flavors is practically Technicolor, it’s so bright. Flett calls for Hendricks gin in his recipe, and the rose-herb flavors really shine here. In fact, any “special” gin you’ve been hiding away would be fantastic; we really enjoyed it with a lovely barrel-aged “reposado” gin.
