The Cloud Pearl Blush - a variation

What a difference bitters can make.

I've always loved Angostura bitters, but recently I've been branching out. Have you tried cranberry bitters? They make a super Christmas present suggestion - especially if your partner is stuck for ideas for what to buy you.

Try this variation of The Cloud Pearl. It's surprisingly different in taste, with just a minor adjustment.




The Cloud Pearl Blush


Ingredients:
One measure of gin
One measure of sweet vermouth (bianco)
One measure of dry vermouth
Dash of cranberry bitters
Ice (tonic water ice cubes and regular).
 
Preparation:
Make some tonic water ice cubes by pouring tonic water into the ice cube tray. 
    To make:
    Place liquor into a shaker and shake lightly with two or three ice cubes per person.
    Place tonic water ice cube into a classic wide cocktail glass.

    The cranberry bitters create this subtle pink shade and add a lovely fruity hint.


    Keep checking in.
