Rosie the Riveter

Fall 2014

“Because the gin is around 114 proof and full of juniper flavor, it shines even with the other ingredients. The rosé is made from primarily Nebbiolo grapes, lending a tart but subtle cherry flavor. It adds a soft balance to the drink. We add tonic water to the cocktail so it resembles a cherry gin and tonic.” Caitlin Love, bartender, District Commons, Washington, D.C.

1 ounce navy strength gin
1 ounce dry rosé
1/2 ounce cherry liqueur
1/2 ounce tonic water

Pour the gin, rosé, and liqueur into a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake well and pour into a highball glass with fresh ice. Top with tonic water. Garnish with a cherry.
