Wishing you were away somewhere tropical right now?
A few years back I shared a Sicilian Sling from an Italian cocktail class. That sling is nothing like this one. That one was herbally and darker tasting. This one is all brightness. This recipe came from Taste of Asia- Authentic Recipes from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines and Japan by Steven Wheeler along with the Pork Empanadas and Chili Chicken that I shared a few weeks ago.
Easy to put together and delicious for the warm days ahead, (or even if you are just pretending that it is warm out).
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz cherry flavored brandy
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 satsuma orange, juiced
soda water to taste
optional: cherries, orange slice, lemon slice, mint
Mix gin, brandy, lemon juice, and satsuma juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Serve in a glass over ice. Top with soda water to taste. Garnish with lots of things.
