The Sunflower Cocktail

The Sunflower Cocktail is a lovely refreshing drink to sip on a warm summer evening. The color is reflective of a the bright sun as it hits the horizon.

I purchased a bottle of Ford’s London Dry Gin on the recommendation of my friend Mark. I used it in The Sunflower Cocktail because I was told it would blend well with the citrus flavors in the drink.

A snippet about gin.

Gin is made from a neutral spirit plus the addition of juniper berries which gives gin its distinctive and smooth flavor. The two ingredients form the base of the gin, then additional botanicals are added such as lemon, bitter orange peel, spices such as licorice root, cinnamon, cardamom and black pepper or orris root, almond and lime peel. There are many botanical ingredients used  to give gin its aromatic flavor profile. Because there is such variety, I prefer to try something different each time I purchase a bottle.

Many mixologists prefer London Dry Gin for mixed cocktails. Ford’s is one, Tanqueray is another classic London Dry. They can be used in a martini, a gin and tonic or in mixed cocktails. Other good choices of classic London dry gins are Beefeater and Bombay Sapphire.

My suggestion is to start experimenting and decide which gin is your favorite. Try the Violet Water Cocktail, another gin cocktail using Tanqueray Gin.
