Salty Elephant

August 25, 2009

Bols Genever
Canton ginger liqueur
lemon juice
housemade salted plum puree

Shake and fine strain into a cocktail glass. garnish with a lemon twist.

"Genever" (simply Dutch for juniper) has a slightly sweeter, rounder gin than London Dry style gins (Beefeater, for example), and is made by malting the grain before distilling. Genevers are also aged for a bit in oak, thus softening the potentially medicinal edge of the botanicals.
