The Perfect Gin Cocktail

Beth Ribblett

Inspired by a bottle of John D. Taylor Velvet Falernum we've been experimenting with lately, Kerry has created our new favorite summer cocktail.  Velvet Falernum is an addictive sugar cane liqueur from Barbados and is a staple in many of the classic Caribbean cocktails.   A little cane syrup and Barbados rum are infused with lime, cloves, almond ginger, and offers limitless possibilities for the adventurous mixologist!

Just add friends, ocean breezes and a beautiful sunset and you'll have the perfect beach cocktail.  Enjoy!

1 jigger gin (we like Broker's or Aviation with this)
1/2 jigger velvet falernum
1/2 jigger fresh lime juice
splash of simple syrup to taste
shake with ice
pour into a rocks glass
top with a splash of aged rum or cachaca
garnish with a thin wedge of lime or lime peel
