I’m not one for cocktails, especially a variety that was too complicated for my understanding. Only as of recently did I really appreciate wine, beer and whiskey as my interest peaked because I enjoyed cooking with them. My father, on the other hand, has always been the bartender of the family {and parties}. When my parents host dinners and other gatherings, there is always a signature cocktail. This tells you a bit about how, though very similar, disparate we are.I don’t have a favorite cocktail either. Not one that I get if it’s too cold or warm out. Not until recently when I was home and after a brutal day and a half of traveling did he hand me a beautiful 24-karat rimmed champagne coupe. Now I’m a sucker for beautiful kitchen and barware, so I gladly accepted and he had mixed a simple gin and tonic. Though disparate, he knows me well enough to serve something I would most likely decline in a something shiny and new. And so from there I deemed it was necessary to fill the beautiful coupes with an equally beautiful cocktail. As the sweet and floral essence watch the pungent juniper berries’ and lemon flirt, it is definitely a rotating cocktail of choice.
