Chatham Cocktail:

  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. ginger brandy (vodka)
  • 1 tsp. sugar.

Dissolve sugar in lemon juice in a shaker. Add ice, gin, and ginger liqueur. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with candied ginger.

For this classic cocktail, I chose to use Ransom pre-prohibition gin. It made the drink taste richer and more like a cordial that it would have had I used a London dry gin. Experiment and enjoy this recipe. The Chimes ginger candy was a very good call and really paired well with the richness of the gin.
