TDN (Thursday Drink Night) is a group of cocktail bloggers and enthusiasts who get together in the Mixoloseum chat room to share recipes based on a theme. This last week the theme was "Bubbles". Any cocktail with a bubbly ingredient was fair game. Tonic, champagne, ginger beer, and club soda was used. I brought some sparkling sake and hard apple cider. The sake didn't get opened this time but we used the cider in a variation of another cocktail that was posted here last fall. It turned out pretty good after some tweaking of the ratios.
2 oz gin
1/2 oz Dolin Blanc
1/4 oz maple syrup (use the grade B stuff)
2 dashes whiskey barrel bitters
barspoon pimento dram.
Stir and strain over ice. Add 2 oz hard apple cider.
