Father's Day Sour - The London N°1

Next Sunday is Father’s Day in Belgium. You might have considered the classic choice for a boozy present (Gin of bubbly for women, but mostly dark spirits for men), but why not do the opposite this year? Men also like a refreshing and good quality Gin & Tonic to wet the appetite before firing up the BBQ. 

Of course a G&T might be a bit too easy for a new festive blogpost, so I tried to make it a bit tastier by adding some fruity sours. Don’t let the color fool you, this is not a sweet drink. This sour is a bitter and boozy aperitif most men will certainly appreciate. 

The base for my drink is The London N°1 Gin, distilled in copper pot stills in the heart of London and a stylish brother of the popular Mom Gin range. Gonzalez Byass is the brand owner. 

Father’s Day Sour

50 ml London N°1 Gin
30 ml Grapefruit juice
15 ml Maraschino liqueur (Max. 20 ml, for me 15 ml was already enough)
A dash of citrus bitters
Fever-Tree Premium Soda Water

Add everything but the soda water to a shaker with lots of ice. Shake hard until the shaker feels really cold. Fine strain into a big coppa glass with fresh ice. Top with soda water. Garnish with grapefruit.
