Drink Recipe Ep 001

Too Many Adverbs

  • 1.5 oz Gin
  • ½ oz Elderflower
  • ½ oz Lime
  • ¾ oz Lemon
  • ¾ oz simple syrup
  • Splash of Seltzer

Shake all except seltzer in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into a highball glass over ice and top with seltzer.

The above drink tastes fine, but you could get a similar, stronger flavor by paring down a few ingredients and choosing stronger ones:

Adverbs Revised:
  • 2.5oz gin
  • 1.5oz lemon
  • 1 oz honey syrup 
    (This adds more flavor than simple syrup and some light floral notes in one ingredient, so it replaces the elderflower and the simple syrup)
  • Top with Club Soda 
    (This has a little more character than seltzer, so is also like using a stronger word)
