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!
