An attempt at a ginger rum lime drink built around TPA Ginger Ale. Not the best way to go since ginger ale has a heavy vanilla cream going on that is not hidden at this high a percentage. It's good, but a cleaner ginger drink built around FLV Ginger is probably in the future... until then, here is a solid balanced drink that gives you an excuse to use your Gingers
My take on an elderflower gin gimlet - this is not for everyone but if you like a different profile and enjoy florals this may be for you
on the inhale you get the apple lime that transitions to the rose and elderflower sweetness with a light dry gin finish
Rose essence is very light but noticeable along with elderflower which is very much to me like the st germain aperitif flavors- they create the mid notes f and pick up on the botanical notes from the gin
Apple creates some juiciness and top note sweetness, it also pulls in some of the notes from the rose. it used her to help balance this mix for the dryness of the gin
golden syrup creates some base syrup sweetness that is similar to simple syrup in a cocktail
Melon rind is like the white and green part of a watermelon - it i is very similar to the inner white part of a cucumber. used here for some slight wetness
Lime adds some tartness and is essential for a gimlet
A sort of Gin-fizz-let with citrus and lime. Refreshing and satisfying!
VT Botanical Gin is aromatic, grassy and delightfully strange. CAP Juicy Lemon tries to stand out but FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed and VT Bergamot tie it down. Might use a better lemon (FE lemon) when I get it, but its fine as it is.
Could use a little fizz? We'll see if I don't ruin it all by adding some.
Blood Orange Margarita-ish club soda coctail
I have chosen flv agave tequila, flv citrus soda as the base with a drop of extra lime to sharpen the profile.
FLV agave Tequila
I tequila low so as not to make it too boozy, go up to 0.75, if you so please.
FLV Citrus Soda
Stayed relatively low here to leave space for the rest of the flavours. Just used to break the monotony of the tequila. The flavours i selected to use with the tequila sits almost on the same spectrum and i needed something to just give the base some body and depth.
CAP Super Sweet
Along with the Citus soda helps give sweeteness and depth
FA Lime Cold Pressed
Just a dash of juicy lime to sharpen the profile. I chose cold pressed because its a nice sweet and juice lime. Not too zetsy, and no real bitterness. Didnt want to overload as the tequila is plenty bitter already.
FA Blood Orange
This is the star of the show. I love love FA blood orange. Sweet, crisp, loads of citrus high notes and not too deep "red toned" if that makes sense... I wanted a mid to high tone note here... To almost sit on the same spectrum as the tequila.
Again sits on the same spectum as the blood orange and tequila. Together they come accross muddled and they almost translate to a new, unique flavour.Linear, dryish ginger with a tame ginger bite.
Note: ws-23 is a 25% dilution
Okay, okay, it is a Kanzi in the picture (for the purists!) ;P
ADV for my buddy, likes Fuji apples.
Made it refreshing, Apple Fuji (FA) is great and Two Apples (INA) give more body, Lime Tahity Cold Pressed (FA) rounds it all. I used the new Coolada (INW) and it is a beast! Not sure about Sour, will play with it a while...
I think this is a pretty straight forward profile. The Aurora and Fizzy Sherbet base give you that limeade start. Once I added the strawberry trinity I realized it would over power that lime so I added the Florida Key Lime and Tahity cold pressed to even it out. I get this earthy spice from the Tahity that I love, but I also felt the sweeter florida key lime would help minimize it in the mix. Overall I'm really enjoying this mix after a full day steep. On SNV its super floral and you can't really taste the strawberry. On day 2 the strawberry really pops. I think FA Kiwi could work really well in here so there may be a V2 coming.
