History

" I too [says Dick Bradsell] have recently invented a gin based cocktail, heavily inspired by one of the reps from Plymouth coming into my bar and asking me to invent him a drink utilizing his product. I surprised myself with how nice the end result was. We called it the Wibble (it makes you wobble but you won't fall down). Now [year 2000] Match, the bar that I work in, calls itself "the home of the Wibble", which is nice."

Comments

I tried this with Bitter Truth Sloe gin, subbed Creme Yvette for the Blackberry liqueur, omitted the simple syrup, and added the Peychaud's and Lemon bitters. It is a nice drink, though I would try less grapefruit juice next time.


As was alluded to in the notes, I find this to be a seamless and delicious foundation that, for some, can be elaborated into something even more compelling with the appropriate allocation of bitters. I'm actually partial to the inclusion of 1-2 dsĀ Angostrua's aromatic. Great job!
