Facepainting & foam fingers are not you. A belt made of NFL football leather is. Understated fanaticism FTW!

MB Cocktail Contest: Chris Gerber vs. Matthew

MB Cocktail Contest: Chris Gerber vs. Matthew

Chris Gerber

Ingredients:
3 parts Plymouth Gin
1 part High Proof Vodka (such as Red or Blue Label Stolichnaya)
1 part Dry Vermouth

Instructions:
Shake in chilled shaker over cracked ice, or stir, and strain into chilled cocktail glass, topping glass off with:

Fever Tree Tonic Water (1/3 a bottle, or about 3 oz)

and garnishing with a perfect MB's choice Lemon Twist

Matthew

Ingredients:
2oz Plymouth Gin
1/4oz Creme de Violette
1 Clementine Orange
Tonic Water to Taste

Instructions:
1. Pour the Gin and Violette into a pint glass filled with ice. Stir to chill.
2. Strain drink into a rocks glass with ice and top with Tonic Water. I prefer just enough to get bubbles throughout the drink.
3. Peel the Clementine Orange over the glass to release oils. Rim the glass with some of the peel. Skewer one wedge and place in the drink as garnish.

Winner: Chris Gerber
Score: 4-1
Game Summary: Chris Gerber's updated G&T was a little bitter with a heavy quinine backnote, but it still easily beat Matthew's drink which was too much peeling, not enough appealing.
