One good cocktail deserves another. Late last year we created Go Dynamo, an orange-hued, rosemary-scented mix to celebrate U.S. Major League Soccer and, in particular, the Houston Dynamo team. Well, professional women’s soccer has stepped up: Please welcome the Houston Dash. And for their opening 2014 season we offer this:
1 1/2 ounce gin
1 ounce lime juice
2 ounces tangerine juice
1/2 ounce triple sec
3 basil leaves
Put gin, lime juice, tangerine juice, triple sec, and basil in an ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. For a garnish, place a basil leaf in one palm and slap your hands together. Drop the bruised leaf into the drink. Goaooooooooal!
Tasting notes: Basil contributes a soft lift to sweet fresh citrus and juniper-y gin.
Tomorrow: Fresa Collins
