Today’s recipe is Detox Gin Tonic, a tasty cocktail. It is inspired by a cocktail I enjoyed during a recent visit to Castell Rooftop Lounge. You can find Castell Rooftop Lounge at the A C Hotel, Times Square, New York.
You’ll love Detox Gin Tonic. It’s such a refreshing tipple made of gin, ginger and tonic, and dressed with cucumber, lemon and star anise. It’s a delight to the tastebuds.
It’s Saturday night and I’m feeling alright, but that could be because I’ve taste tested an organic elderflower presse martini or two.
In my opinion, elderflower was born to cocktail addition, it blends so well with liquor and brings out or intensifies the flavors of your preferred vodka and gin. Today’s cocktail is gin based and real simple. One part gin, one part extra-dry vermouth, and two parts Belvoir sparkling organic elderflower presse. What’s wonderful about this drink is that it is completely organic. So if you are very nutrition conscious the organic elderflower presse martini will work for you, and if your not – hey, who cares! I am not terribly nutrition conscious, mostly due to the pressure organic foods puts on my purse strings. Although, Birke Baehr, a very young aspiring organic farmer says we should do what we can to eat locally grown organic foods and bear the cost now and “pay the farmer instead of the hospital” – a sobering thought, so I will try to do better. Try my organic elderflower presse martini, it’s good for you…. thin line, I agree.
