Silver Bullet (revisited with homemade kummel)

I remember not liking this drink very much when I opted for Jagermeister (the recommended substitute for kummel). After having several drinks with my homemade honey and caraway kummel, I'm happy to say that the best part of the Silver Bullet is the kummel.

This is a sweet and sour classic combination with gin. I chose Vitae Old Tom gin for its barrel age and sweet marshmallow flavor that I was correct in assuming would play nice with kummel. It did and I had a very enjoyable afternoon drink that was surprisingly easy to make.
  • 2 oz. gin (Vitae Old Tom used)
  • 1 oz. kummel (homemade kummel used)
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
