Gin Sour

I know that everybody is drinking Whiskey Sours now and that gin is kind of old hat. But the Gin Sour is really a splendid drink when you don't want to overthink things. It's just a sour, but with gin. You don't have to use the best gin, but a good dry one like Bombay Sapphire helps. You can have fun trying sweeter gins like Hayman's as well. The point is, this cocktail is just as nuanced as a whiskey drink.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. simple syrup
  • orange slice
  • maraschino cherry
Shake gin, juice and simple syrup on ice in a shaker. Strain into a sour glass or wine goblet and garnish with orange slice and cherry.
