Fool’s Gold

Jen Ackrill, Top of Waikiki, Honolulu, HI, USA

“I love stirred cocktails, love them and I think there is a finesse necessary to build a beautifully simple spirit driven cocktail that tells a story and keeps you interested from start to lingering finish” Jen Ackrill

Fools Gold Jen Ackrill - Copy

30 ml (1 oz) St. George Dry Rye Gin

30 ml (1 oz) Buffalo Trace bourbon

22.5 ml (.75 oz) Bittermens Amére Nouvelle

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Giffard Banane du Bresil

1 lime zest, as garnish

Stir over ice and strain into a chilled coupe.  Add the garnish

gaz sez:  What a weird and wonderful mixture this is!  It’s sort of a Long Island Iced Tea for Cocktailians inasmuch as the ingredients don’t look as though they’d play together well, but Jen puts us straight on that front. They have a very sophisticated party in the glass, and it’s a cocktail that will have you coming back for more!  Well done, Jen.
