I threw together a simple new concoction, last night, and it may have instantly become my favorite cocktail.

In an on-the-rocks glass, I put several ice cubes, a healthy splash of Stirrings Blood Orange bitters (probably about 2 tsp), and a shot of good British gin (I used Tanqueray). It was very good!

For a nice change in the Gin and Tonic recipe I use Hendrick's gin, some nice tonic (such as Q) and then use thinly sliced cucumber wedges instead of lime. Comes out very refreshing.

Hi Tim--

Giving your cocktail a try (the gin was open after I experimented with an Aviator) and I don't mind a healthy splash of the Stirrings orange now that I have Fee Brothers orange bitters.

I liked it but for complexity made one addition -- a splash (same amount as the bitters) of Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur. Need to work on the ratios but it's not bad.

Thanks, Kevin. Domaine de Canton is something I have not heard of, and I seriously doubt that I could find it around here. I would try your suggestion if I could.

I'm trying this Blood Orange Bitters Martini later.
Sounds like my kind of cocktail.

I've been drinking a Gin Basil Smash, modified with Tomato Water.
I think Basil, Tomato and Gin are naturals together.

I got the recipe from the Ardent Cocktailian Website.

Thanks, Ed.

On the gin and tomato idea, I have always preferred my bloody mary's with gin.
