“Four Roses Bourbon, spicy ginger syrup, cucumber juice, lime juice, punt-e-mes vermouth, aromatic bitters. Served up with fresh basil”. ~ their ingredient list.
The bourbon and basil from Orbit Room Cafe is one of those drinks that starts easy and fresh, and gives you greater depth as you make your way through it. At first it’s herbaceous and a little sweet, soon the heat starts to build, and by the end you’ve actually tasted all of the unique elements.
It made me really curious about the possibility of using freshly pressed ginger juice in a cocktail.
I’m considering for this weekend, ginger and cucumber juices, gin and just something a little sweet.
