Juliet & Romeo Cocktail Recipe
We're on a bit of a gin kick right now, and we recently got an email from a good friend highly recommending the following drink recipe he found at Chicago's Violet Hour. It's an amazing mixture of some great ingredients, but of course, you don't have to take our word for it - GQ rated it as one of the Top 20 Cocktails in America.
If you can't make it to Chicago to check it out, try whipping one up for yourself - think gin, lime, mint, rose water, and cucumber...a perfect mix for a steamy day. Our advice if you mix it yourself? Use a delicate hand with your muddler or you could make it too bitter.
Recipe after the jump.
Juliet & Romeo
2 oz Beefeater or Henderick's
.75 oz Fresh Lime Juice

3 drops Angostura Bitters

Muddle cucumber and pinch of salt. Slap the mint. Add rest of ingredients. Let sit for 30 seconds (time allowing). Shake. Strain. Garnish with 1 floating mint leaf and 1 drop rose water on top of leaf, and 3-5 more drops of angostura on the surface of the drink.
