Looking for a new gin cocktail? I think this is one of my latest faves which, of course, contains some of my fantastic bitter ingredients: craft gin and lemon juice. The bitterness of the lemon and the gin is balanced by the sweetness of the triple sec. Although triple sec contains sugar, when you use only 1/2 oz you are adding about 5 grams of sugar to this cocktail, which is still quite a low sugar content.
1 1/2 oz craft gin
1/2 oz triple sec
1 oz lemon juice
Lemon rind twist, garnish
Fill a small cocktail shaker 1/3 full with ice, and then add the gin, triple sec and lemon juice. Shake for about 30 seconds and pour into a cocktail glass. I like to keep the ice in here, instead of straining it. Garnish with a couple of long lemon twists.
