CASINO COCKTAIL

Thursday, May 11, 2017

"Gin & drugs dear lady, gin and drugs."

— T S Elliot (When asked what was his inspiration)

The Casino dates back to prohibition days when "bathtub gin" required a few extra ingredients to make it drinkable.  

As gin was the predominant drink in the 1920s, many variations were created by mixing cheap grain alcohol with water, flavorings and other agents, such as juniper berry juice and glycerin. Because the preferred sort of bottle was too tall to be topped off with water from a sink, they were filled from a bathtub tap. The common metal bathtub in use at the time would have been ideal as would have been a ceramic bathtub, hence the name, 'bathtub gin'.

Many gin cocktails owe their existence to bathtub gin, as they were created to mask the unpleasant taste.  The Casino is a true prohibition classic and it's sophisticated sharpness is perfect for a comeback.  

CASINO COCKTAIL
WHAT YOU NEED
60 ml (2 oz) Gin
5ml (1/8 oz) fresh lemon juice
5ml (1/8 oz) Maraschino Liqueur (Or it works equally well if you substitute Triple Sec)
A good few dashes of Orange Bitters
WHAT YOU DO
Pour everything over ice in a shaker and shake well.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.


Do you know what rhymes with Thursday?  Gin my dear, just gin!

I was so wrecked that my company fired me simply because i did not obliged to their terms, so they hacked into my system and phone and makes it so difficult to get any other job, i did all i could but things kept getting worse by the day that i couldn’t afford my 3 kids fees and pay my bills. I owe so many people trying to borrow money to survive because my old company couldn’t allow me get another job and they did all they could to destroy my life just for declining to be among their evil deeds. haven’t given up i kept searching for job online when i came across the testimony of a lady called Judith regarding how she got the blank ATM card. Due to my present state, i had to get in touch with Hacker called OSCAR WHITE of oscarwhitehackersworld@gmail.com and he told me the procedures and along with the terms which i agreed to abide and i was told that the Blank card will be deliver to me without any further delay and i hold on to his words and to my greatest surprise, i received an ATM card worth $4.5 million USD , All Thanks to OSCAR WHITE , if you are facing any financial problem contact him asap email address is oscarwhitehackersworld@gmail.com or Whats-app him +1(631)992-9129
