… and pickles leeks(!) for the Oakville’s Girls Night Out event. Tipicular Fixin’s Whitney and Trevor have graciously agreed to share their dynamo cocktail recipes here.
1 oz Victoria Gin
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz rhubarb syrup
10 dashes twister & bitter
Place ingredients in a shaker filled with cracked ice. Shake vigorously and strain into your favourite martini glass.
If you’re feeling energetic, Whitney suggests hitting your local farmers’ market for an edible organic flower garnish – and for the rhubarb for your homemade syrup, of course.
2 oz Victoria Gin
1/4 oz pickling liquid
1 Tipicular Fixin’s pickled Wild Leek
Place Gin and pickling liquid in a shaker filled with cracked ice. Shake and strain into a martini glass or coupette. Garnish with a pickled wild leek.
Every cocktail has a story. Trevor shares:
The wild leeks we picked ourselves from a forest on my Aunt’s 100 acre farm in Midland and we then pickled them earlier in the week. It was a ton of work, but loads of fun. We garnished our Victoria Gin Classic Martinis with them and the crowd loved it. Some asked that we add some of the pickle juice to make Dirty/Gibson Martinis and we decided to name it Moonstone #3, Moonstone Road and Line 3 is where the farm is located in Midland, Ontario.
Thanks for sharing your creativity and for making us shine, you two!
