Damn the Weather might not be the perfect cocktail, but it’s a fair weather friend to someone who might not be all that crazy about the sturdy juniper flavor in some gins. This drink downplays the strong juniper flavored beast.
Damn the Weather Cocktail Recipe
Damn the Weather
2 ounces Gin
1/2 ounce Orange Juice
1/4 ounce Sweet Vermouth
1/4 ounce Orange Curacao
Combine all liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake or stir to blend and chill. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
Slight aroma of orange juice gives way in the beginning, but sweetness of the orange Curacao overpowers the cocktail a bit. Sweet vermouth does add nice balance, but not enough to allow the gin enough play time.
