The Ace Cocktail


.75 oz. gin (Plymouth)
.25 oz. grenadine (Jack Rudy)
2 tsp. cream
.5 egg white

Shake with ice, pour, sprinkle nutmeg, and serve.

Hands down this is not a good cocktail. Eric picks up on this right away. I, however, don’t really taste the drink and just slug back a mouthful. My second sip is much different because I swish it in my mouth to really taste it. The grenadine is a weird finish to a gin and cream cocktail. Both Eric and I agree that this is another loser.

Eric: “This is just foamy gin.”
Brian: “It’s not bad if you drink it without tasting it. But once you swirl it around in your mouth, it’s terrible.”

SCORES: Brian gives it a mediocre 2. Eric, a strong 1.
