Southern Gin Cocktail

There's something to the idea that a gin cocktail in the South may be too dry for the warm weather. One should try the burst of orange flavor that you get from adding triple sec and orange bitters. I used Sunset Hills Virginia Small Batch gin to get a very soft American style gin that's more citrus and less bite. It plays right with the strong Triplum from Luxardo and allows orange bitters to stand out.
  • 3 oz. gin (Sunset Hills Virginia Small Batch)
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec (Luxardo used)
  • 3 dashes orange bitters (Hella used)
  • lemon twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over the drink and drop it in.
