One of my absolute favorite drinks sampled at The Art of the Cocktail last week was an original by Simon Ford (top left), mixologist and bartender extraordinaire. A self-proclaimed gin man, Ford blew me away with this simple, yet delicious cocktail recipe. Positively refreshing, I had to share. This will most definitely become one of my standard classics.
Pour ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir well with cracked ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twisted swatch of thin-cut lemon peel and enjoy!
