Gin cocktails do not only add the freshness to your consumables, but also help your digestive system and assist in weight loss. Apart from things you add as a cocktail ingredient, gin does not come in excess amounts of sugar, and studies provide it is not a drink that people with diabetes might avoid flushing down every day. What is more, it is not a high-calorie drink. In fact, it does not provide as much as a glass of wine does. However it can help in joint pain and inflammation. Of course, it will not replace the medications your doctor prescribes, but some tiny differences are apparent before and after its usage.
All of the above mentioned benefits of gin and gin cocktails come from the simple one base of the drink – juniper. Gin is a relatively fresh beverage, while drinks that include juniper have been around for over thousand of years. People have been using it to fight against different problems- headaches and toothaches included. Mostly, it was the preferred ingredient to relieve kidney and liver pain too, by moving dangerous toxins away from your body.
Gin Cocktails: From Aviation Gin to “The Weeds”
One of the famous American gins is that with the name Aviation. Ryan Reynolds recently has bought the rights to this American gin. His wish to collaborate with Richard Branson started back in time when he tasted this unique gin. Aviation beverages will be available Within Virgin Atlantic’s airports, or else on airplanes. In fact, Aviation gin is smoother to drink when compared to Spirits from London, United Kingdom. And here is a gin cocktail with Aviation, named Orange Blossom.
Orange Blossom cocktail includes 2oz of Aviation, 1/2oz of Galliano liqueur, one and a half oz of orange cordial, an oz of egg whites, a couple or triple of mint leaves And five orange bitters dashes. Adding all the ingredients upon each other and shaking it dry rigorously will make the egg white become foamy. After the process, add one or two cubes of ice and continue shaking about 20 times, before you pour it into the glass. Your gin is ready for consumption.
The next gin cocktail with egg white is called Green Virgin. Its ingredients include Tanqueray gin of 2oz, .75oz of egg white, half an oz of yellow liqueur, preferably Chartreuse, lemon juice and rose syrup of an ounce, half an ounce of extra virgin oil and a couple of Peychaud’s dashes. First, you need to mix egg white with the gin, then add the liqueur, plus the rest of the contains. Shaking for a while the whole mixture, then adding the bitters is the last thing you need to do.
La Guapa is a cocktail with an extravagant taste, as it is a mixture of such ingredients as Lavender Gin , rhubarb syrup, lemon juice and sprigs of lavender. Lemon juice needs to be half the measure of gin and rhubarb, in order to taste less sour. After shaking all of these together, decorate the top with brut rose (Anna Codorniu Cava).
Finally, the last of our gin cocktails’ recipes is that of “In the Weeds”. It includes Nolet gin, 1oz of chartreuse, half and ounce of lemon and lime juices, as well as 0.75oz of tarragon syrup. Garnishing the whole thing with tarragon leaves for extra taste is the final touch, before you drink this refreshing gin mix. Most importantly, you need to make it equal to the room temperature and then add the cubes of ice.
