New Thing #36: Broker’s Promise



Relatively speaking, I’ve come to appreciate gin rather late in my life. It’s become one of those things I drink on a sunny afternoon when I want to keep things fresh and cheery instead of something I make use of it at home. I’m normally more of a dry vodka martini guy anyway.

But last night my friend (and booze aficionado) Steve, sent me this recipe. This afternoon the ingredients were in my shopping cart.

Broker’s Promise
2 parts Brokers Gin
2 parts Cranberry Juice
1 part lemon-lime soda
2 sliced strawberries

Put strawberries in old fashioned glass. Cover w/ice cubes. Add Gin, cranberry Juice and lemon/lime soda. Stir gently.

I feel a little dirty using Tanqueray gin instead of Broker’s since they’re the ones responsible for creating the drink, but I’ll be sure to pick that up when this bottle runs out.

And after taking one sip of this cocktail I don’t think it’ll be long before it needs replacing.
