I had never heard of the Correct Cocktail until Ana sent me a hand-typed recipe and a picture of one in my Christmas card. It has been so cold here so I figured it would be a perfect time to cozy up with a gingery cocktail. I have to say, as a fairly new convert to ginger (this cocktail was the turning point for me), the Correct Cocktail might be a new winter favorite.
The Correct Cocktail
1.5 oz gin
0.5 oz ginger liqueur (Ana recommended Stirrings…it’s delicious)
0.5 oz triple sec
0.5 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 dashes orange bitters
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist. Enjoy on a cold, snowy night while watching Metallica play the Grammys.
