Cheers! Summer Cocktails for Every Occasion — and Skill Level

Cocktails_Bluecoat_ginEveryone should have a few classic cocktails in their repertoire, and the dry martini is no exception. When you want to keep things really simple, create a three-ingredient cocktail with quality ingredients that are easy to keep on hand at all times. I chose Bluecoat Gin from Philadelphia Distilling. The bottle will look super chic on your bar. While I went with the classic, they also offer a recipe for a Bluecoat Continental Martini that has a fruitier, summery taste but requires a few more ingredients.

Dry Gin Martini

  • 1 1/2 oz Bluecoat Gin
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • Green olives

Build in a martini glass and stir.
