If you want a light and refreshing and light, clammy cocktail--this is perhaps the only one in the New York Bartender's Guide that doesn't turn into a Bloody Mary. This bottle of Wild Irish that Glendalough distillery sent me last year is not only a bright and uplifting gin to use with clam juice, it is also apropos Irish like Co. Conemara's famous cocktail.

I kept my dash of Tabasco light for this one so I could appreciate the gin, which come across as extremely fresh. This is because the botanicals that Glendalough uses are foraged from the wilds around the distillery and distilled with the gin the same day they are picked. It can be said that the taste of this gin is an expression of the natural environment of Glendalough.
  • 2 oz. gin (Glendalough Wild Irish botanical gin used)
  • 3 oz. clam juice
  • dash Tabasco sauce
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into an (double) Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice.
