The Big Pink

Jason Simplot, Suite 410, Seattle, WA, USA

“A boozy patio cocktail for gin drinking ladies in the know. It’s got brand recognition, and yet it also has plenty of complex, esoteric things going. Named after the debut album, Music From The Big Pink, by The Band,” Jason Simplot

60 ml (2 oz) Bombay Sapphire ginbig pink - Copy

15 ml (.5 oz) St. Germain elderflower liqueur

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Campari

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh grapefruit juice

3 drops Scrappy’s Cardamom Bitters

1 rose, fashioned from grapefruit rinds, and 1 lime leaf, as garnishes

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled coupette.  Add the garnishes

gaz sez:  Well I sure as hell didn’t fashion no rose out of grapefruit rinds to test this one, but it is a pretty superb quaff.  Show me some cardamom and I’ll follow you anywhere . . .
