Black Bowtie Gimlet

1
1 12 oz Gin
34 oz Lime juice
34 oz Simple syrup
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
1 ds Bitters (Five Watt Gin Bitters)
4 dr Squid ink
2   Salt Solution (atomized)
Instructions
Shake gin, lime, simple, bitters and ink. Double strain into a chilled coupe, and spritz twice with salt solution.
Notes
*Five Watt Gin Bitters were used in the original recipe to boost the juniper profile in a softer, more botanical gin against the citric/briney ink. With a London Dry they might not be necessary
History
A complex, interesting twist on a pretty strait built cocktail. More tannic & broader in citrus flavor than a traditional lime-only gimlet. It also has a more daiquiri-esque richness that a gimlet can lack
