History

At Our Fathers, I crafted this three gin riff on the Vieux Carré with dry gin, sloe gin, and Genever akin to Martin Cate's The Modern Prometheus tiki drink. Here, the sloe gin was subbing in for the 1930s classic's sweet vermouth. For a name, I was inspired by the old cheer "Hip hip hooray!" to call this one the Gin Gin Carré!

  • Interested to try this out as intended. Had to sub in Green Chartreuse because I was out of Benedictine. Jammy, with the genever coming through well. Chartreuse is much more prominent than Benedictine would be.
