Martin for all you who don’t know was the founder of the highly individualistic gin company by the same name. His gin set the stage for many of the micro distilled brands of gin that we see on the market today.
The Martin Miller’s Gin & Twisted Tonic
2 oz. martin miller’s gin
1 oz. Tomr Tonic Syrup
4 oz. Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water (pink grapefruit)
2-3 dashes Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters
Hand cut ice (freeze Tupperware 1 gallon trays with triple boiled distilled water overnight, cut to size for each drink)
Rub the grapefruit peel on the inside of each Collins glass, first burning it slightly against a match to bring out the natural oils
Add the hand cut ice to the glass
Add the tonic syrup and the gin over the top of the syrup
Add the Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water
Top with the Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters and serve immediately after stirring with a long colorful straw!
Cheers from DrinkUpNY!
