Beefeater 24 Cocktail recipe

Happy Hour: Fitzgerald


Recently, I got a little carried away in a canning experiment and wound up returning from the farmers market with a 50-pound crate of tomatoes.

After learning how to be a bit more resourceful with my refrigerator and pantry, I decided to try the same thing with cocktails, so I made a drink using whatever was already in my kitchen. I combined lemons and simple syrup — two ingredients I always have on hand — with Angostura bitters and Beefeater 24, a tea-infused gin. The result? A botanical beverage with just the pluck I was going for. For the recipe, keep reading.
