Saturn

Friday, February 28, 2014


Tiki almost always means rum, but this gin-based cocktail is a winner–and one of John's favorites to pull out when you need a bit of summer in a glass.


Saturn

1 1/4 oz gin
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz passion fruit syrup
1/4 falernum
1/4 orgeat syrup

Combine ingredients with ice in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint. 


Notes: The Saturn is rich enough to withstand a good beating in the blender (as so many of my favorite vacation drinks are), but you can also make this cocktail in a shaker with crushed ice. If you're willing to commit to a Tiki weekend, you can actually make your own falernum and orgeat syrups–but Fee Brothers' syrup should be relatively easy to find, and our favorite Small Hand Foods can be replaced by the almond syrup you see at coffee shops. As for gin, use something that's lighter on the juniper–with so many strong flavors, there's no need to throw another one in the mix. Cheers!

    This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.
