We’ve dispatched our international representative to London this week to sample a few gin-based cocktails. A Basil Smash or Red Snapper, which we found on the Gin Foundry site. We’ll also send along this recipe and a bottle of Waterloo Antique, the barrel-aged gin from Treaty Oak Distilling in Austin, Texas.
2 ounces Waterloo Antique Gin
1/2 ounce pineapple juice
1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir evenly for 20 seconds until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Tasting notes: Barrel aging adds tannins to the juniper, bringing depth and complexity.
Tomorrow: Diablo Nero
