Red Wine Gin Sour

Red Wine Gin Sour
Ingredients: (makes 1 cocktail, but easily scales up)

  • 1.5 fluid ounces London dry gin
  • 0.75 fluid ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 0.75 fluid ounce simple syrup (from recipe above)
  • 0.75 fluid ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 large egg white
  • 0.75 fluid ounce Italian red wine

Recipe

Combine the gin, elderflower liqueur, simple syrup, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and egg white in a metal cocktail shaker. Shake with the metal coil from a Hawthorne strainer for 15 to 20 seconds.

Add ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for another 15 to 20 seconds. Strain into an empty shaker with no ice and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds more.

Transfer the mixture to a tall glass with ice, and finish the drink off by pouring red wine over the back of a bar spoon over the center of the glass. Given its weight, the wine will automatically sink below the foam to create that ombre layered effect. Serve immediately.

On a Friday, a cocktail sounds like a good call. Perhaps I’ll give this one a try.

WUGC 2016 – USA vs Japan Men’s Gold Medal Game

Ultimate Frisbee is a wonderful sport, not simply because it is one that I’ve been able to participate in (despite my height and relative lack of strength), but for so many reasons. Perhaps my favorite part of Ultimate Frisbee is that games are self-referee’d, and fouls/penalties (of which there are regularly relatively few) are called and debated amongst the players. This match video is quite long but is a great example of the sport, at the highest level. Over the next few weeks and months I’ll post some of my favorite other game videos.
