Gin- Cointreau Drink

Gin- Cointreau Drink

I am not a connoisseur when it comes to spirits, cocktails, wine, I am a trained chef and I like to use my judgement, knowledge in creating different types of drinks. I am also not a big fan of cocktails, I like hard drinks or wines, but since we have moved to Singapore we have almost stopped drinking wine, hence I find myself creating new drinks or cocktails.

After a productive day I like to fix myself a good drink and enjoy the evening peace, in Tokyo we both used to drink wine or whiskey but in Singapore because of the hot weather I find myself drinking a lot gin. Just a few days ago I was tired of my sickness and wanted to just calm my nerves so I came up with this drink. I can guarantee you, you will love this drink as much as I and my friends did. For this drink I used Hendrick’s gin which is one of my favourite once but you can use any gin you have.

This is how I made it.

Ingredients:

  • 30 ml or 3 cl Hendrick’s Gin
  • 15 ml or 1.5 cl Cointreau
  • 1 cube of ice (you can use more, I don’t like to dilute my drink)
  • 250 ml tonic water
  • 2 lemon or orange slices
  • A dash of angostura bitters (optional)

Directions:

In a glass place ice, pour both spirits and top it up with cold tonic water.  Sprinkle the bitter.

Place the lemon or orange slices and stir.

Drink and enjoy.. 😉
