Having procured a bottle of Martin Miller's gin I looked around for something to test it with and stumbled across the Fin de Siecle cocktail. Apparently created in the 1920'ies in honor of the previous turn of the century.
This cocktail contains Picon, a orange bitter liqueur that is poured into beer in some parts of France for a very refreshing Picon biere.
Without further ado, here it is:
- 4 cl gin - Millers was great
- 2 cl Lillet Blanc
- 1 cl Picon
- 1 dash of orange bitters
Stir the first three ingredient with ice in a mixing glass until your cocktail is very cold. Strain into pretty cocktail glass, add the dash of orange bitters and a twist of orange.
