The Foxtail

Adapted from a recipe by Thomas Kunick, Rumor Lounge,Las Vegas.

“This drink was created to promote Oxley gin at an event at the Downtown Cocktail Room in Las   Vegas. It has also been recently featured in Vegas Seven magazine, a local publication, honoring Bénédictine.” Thomas Kunick.

30 ml (1 oz) Oxley gin

30 ml (1 oz) Bénédictine

30 ml (1 oz) white grapefruit juice

1 grapefruit twist, as garnish

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze the twist over the drink, then add as garnish.

gaz sez:  White grapefruit juice and Bénédictine go so damned well together you’re not going to believe how good this drink is until you taste it for yourself.  The Oxley gin ain’t too shabby in the Foxtail, either.  It bravely makes itself known as the overlord of the other two ingredients, but it lets them strut their own stuff, too.  Nicely done, Thomas.
