Bachelor's Bait

You have to love the name of this cocktail. For one, It's my drink when I have the place to myself. And then there's the pink fluff...

But the real beauty of this cocktail is bitterness with no citrus tartness. You get orange bitters on the nose and gin in the sip. Copper Fox Vir Gin is a very intense single malt gin, so the grain is present as well as anise, coriander, cardamon, and rosemary and basil. So many bitter botanicals that this drink takes on the flavor of an old world spiced candy. It may look pink and frilly, but it demands your attention and appreciation.
  • 2 oz. gin (Copper Fox Vir Gin used)
  • 3 dashes orange bitters (Hella Bitters used)
  • 3/4 tsp. grenadine
  • 1 egg white
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill and strain out the ice. Shake liquid again and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
