- 1 oz. London Dry Gin
- 1 oz. Cointreau
- 0.25 oz. lime juice
- 1/4 tsp. Ponzu
Here’s a light and unique sipper using the gin from a Negroni, the Cointreau from a Sidecar and part of the lime juice from a Daiquiri. The Abby Normal ingredient here is obviously the Ponzu, a soy sauce with a hint of citrus. It provides a wonderful saltiness to the drink that I love.
In Young Frankenstein there is a line about choosing a giant corpse to simplify working with all the parts. I think in this drink’s case pilfering a much larger Negroni and Margarita would help. Doubling the size might be a little much, but using 1.5 oz. gin and Cointreau would make sense to me, perhaps keeping the lime juice and Ponzu at the above measurements.
It just occurred to me a garnish of a Ritz cracker might be appropriate…
