Responding to a request from Britain for another Winter Olympics cocktail, this time honoring the BBC Sports trolley following the British team, we created OK UK. The base spirit is gin, mais oui. The Falernum, a rum-based liqueur, adds a deeper taste to the drink and blue curacao lends an icy appearance. Serve cold, like the trolley, and the best of British luck to you!
2 ounces dry gin
1 ounce Falernum
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce blue curacao
Put all ingredients in an ice-filled mixing glass. Stir until icy cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. No garnish here, this is downhill all the way.

Tasting notes: Complex and strong, like the BBC’s Sochi Trolley. So cold it’s blue, like the Sochi trolley.
