Castle Cocktail

castle-sam_2877This serving is based upon the Pegu Club Cocktail, which originated at the Pegu Club in Rangoon (Burma). A simple exchange of lime juice for lemon brings a new flavour to the serving which,with Botonica Spitivs as the base gin, is quite delicious. The cocktail is named for the Castle Trilogy written by J.H. Wear and published by Melange Books. Mr. Wear as well as being an author (he writes, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Mystery stories) is also the liquor agent responsible for bringing Botanica Spiritvs Gin into my home Province.

Castle Cocktail

1 1/2 oz Botanica Spiritvs Gin
3/4 oz Bols Triple Sec
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Dash Bitters (Angostura Bitters)
Strip of Lemon Zest for garnish

Pour the ingredients into a metal shaker filled with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker frosts
Strain into a chilled glass
Garnish with a slice of lime if desired
