Submitted by on May 31, 2013 – 1:35 pmNo Comment

Back from a lengthy descent into the MixPourSip cocktail research vaults has yielded a few new fun reasons to bend your elbow. Here now is the first of said efforts, Tom’s Quinquinian Love. It is made from a few of our favorite ingredients these days; Ransom Old Tom Gin and Byrrh Grand Quinquina. Both a quite ready subjects for your cocktail explorations.

Yes, it is another gin drink from us and, for that, we offer no apology. Tom’s Quinquinian Love is sweet without being syrupy and is great cold. I recommend it in smaller amounts, a four ounce cocktail as opposed to a larger downtown bar get the girls lit after work sized offering. It is also much better served extremely cold.

Ransom Old Tom is the gin for whiskey lovers. Great flavor, gin clean for sure, but with more roundness through the entire sip. The Byrrh Quinquina is only slight herbal and less sweet, I believe, than Carpano Formula Antica which would’ve pushed this offering into the far too sweet realm. We bring out the sweet, however, with half ounces each of lime syrup and fresh guava juice. Lime syrup, in this case Monin, is tart as well as sweet while the guava juice offers a velvety viscosity to the final drink even in the small amount used.

This is definitely a Summer drink and one that drinks way too easily but resist the temptation to rush to its conclusion. I recommend it as the starting point to an evening out as you transition from warm day to your more dimly lit adventures. Feedback is always appreciated. Let us know what you think.

Tom’s Quinquinian Love
