Death in the Gulfstream Cocktail

Don't assume that the name of this cocktail is intended to make some sort of timely ecological statement. The refreshing gin-based cocktail was actually created by Ernest Hemingway, originally found in Charles H. Baker's Jigger, Beaker, and Glass. Find this version at New York's Pachanga Patterson.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces gin, preferably Plymouth
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 4 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Ice
  • Lime round, for garnish

Directions

Add all of the ingredients except for garnish together in a highball glass filled with ice. Stir and garnish with a lime round.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
