1.5 Oz Dry Gin
0.75 Oz St Germain Eldeflower Liqueur
0.50 Oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
Lemon Twist for Garnish
This is a very simple cocktail, which gives it great mass appeal. Combine the gin, the St. Germain, and the lemon juice in a shaker. Fill with ice and shake. Now shake some more. And a bit more. When it's too cold to shake, just give it one or two more good shakes. Serve it up in a martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
3 parts Plymouth Gin
1 part High Proof Vodka (such as Red or Blue Label Stolichnaya)
1 part Dry Vermouth
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
Winner: David McCabe
Game Summary: Gerber's drink is a nice, upscale twist on the gin and tonic, but without somehow icing the tonic it was a touch warm. The lemon-eldeflower balance of McCabe's cocktail is pretty awesome. A pitcher of these would go great with a cricket test match.
