About this Cocktail

Created for Tales 2013 to quiet the voices in my head

  • 1.5 oz Royal Dock Navy Strength Gin
  • 1.5 oz Carpano Antica
  • .5 oz Seagrams Tonic Tincture
  • .5 oz aromatized slow squeezed cashew apple juice (Steeped with Juniper Berries and Star Anise)
  • 1 packet orange Kool Aid mix
  • 1 packet ice blue raspberry lemonade Kool Aid mix
  • Bittermens 'Elemakule Tiki Bitters

Express the contents of the two Kool aid packets onto a small plate and set aside until it has a chance to settle, then mix with the end of a long swizzle stick.

Dry shake the Navy Strength Gin, Carpano Antica and Aromatized Cashew Apple juice.

Add Gas Station Ice (GSI) to shaker and do the hard shake.

Rim a double old fashioned glass with the Kool Aid mix (do this with and open bottle of Bittermens 'Elemakule Tiki bitters nearby)

Add Hoshizaki Pillow Ice (HPI) to the glass

Pour over ice and add Seagrams Tonic Tincture

Garnish with a Shiso leaf
