We’re rather fond of vermouth here at Australian Bartender. Whilst we’re happy with a vermouth and soda, it’s also the backbone of many a classic cocktail giving the drink depth and weight on the palate.
It also affords a lower-alcohol drink, should you combine it with sherry (and you should) as happens with the Adonis; vermouth also plays well with other herbs, complementing Chartreuse nicely, as in the Bijou we’ve got here.
30ml Applewood Gin
30ml Carpano Antica Formula
20ml Green Chartreuse
Stir down all ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
You guys ever had Unriped Mangos with Lime, Hot Sauce, and a dash of salt? I know my fellow Nyer's can relate. Here I've made my interpretation in cocktail form.
First I puréed an unriped mango with a few dashes of Tabasco. - 1/2 Part Fresh Lime
- 1 Part Puréed Mango mix
- 1/2 Part Simple
- 1/2 Part Mango infused Rum
- 1 Part Tequila
- 1/2 Part Honeydew Jalapeño shrub by @elementshrub - 1/2 Part Egg White
Add all into shaker with ice, and shake vigouressly. Pour and Enjoy!
Prepare for a bit of a rant ... After beginning work full time with the amazing Opera Australia, I was on the lookout for the perfect morning coffee spot and I have most definitely found it ☕️ @saltie.surryhills has some of the nicest staff around (who can miraculously always remember my order - talk about memory!), not to mention one of the best egg and bacon rolls I've ever tried 👌🏻 This gorgeous Tiffany style green colour now just makes me happy in the mornings ☀️ Just trust me and give Saltie a go - you won't be disappointed. ⭐️ #ilovesaltie
Magnetic magic at Gong. The cocktail is Feel the Force (George Lucas inspired) and this is the Dark Side version: Grey Goose vodka, manzanilla, Campari, chilli and pomegranate. I'm not going to lie, I didn't get around to trying it. Sounds tasty though. The Light Side is vodka, coconut, pasties and clarified lime. I didn't try that either. Next time!

This was a Front Of The House (Capulets) and Back Of The House (Montagues) collaboration. It was a tragic love, it was a... Forbidden Love:

Gin and it's marriage with tonic has a long and interesting history. In the 1850s when the British Empire took control of India, where the empire's early immigrants struggled with the ravages of malaria. Bark from the South American cinchona tree had been used by the British since the 1600s to relieve a myriad of ailments, giving it the nickname of the "fever tree". Among the list of illnesses cured by quinine, which is derived from the bark to the cinchona tree, is malaria. Tonic infused with quinine became a necessity for the early colonial settlers of India and their favourite way to administer their daily dose of quinine became to mix it with gin and a bit of citrus.
