Friday’s Vintage Cocktail!

Hello lovelies!

The weekend is here, and I’m so very excited to be sharing with all of you my Friday’s Vintage Cocktail blog post! On Friday’s I share a fabulous true vintage or true vintage inspired cocktail with you all to celebrate the weekend being here! As always please be sure to drink responsibly and if any younger readers come across this, be sure to abide by your states drinking laws.

This is the first Friday’s Vintage Cocktail I’ve concocted in our outdoor area at our vintage bar, I didn’t perfect the lighting today so the photos are not as fabulous as I’d like, but I will be working on this for the future!

For this week’s decadent drink I’m sharing with you all the glamorous Gin Daisy Cocktail! The Daisy cocktail is a cocktail with a base spirit, lemon juice, a grenadine or sugar and sometimes a soda, these drinks date back to 1880’s, with one of the first being the Brandy Daisy. The first Gin Daisy appeared around 1887 in Jerry Thomas’s book the “Bartender’s Guide”, and was quite popular from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Let’s enjoy this fabulous cocktail together!

Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients (minus your garnish fruit) in a mixer, and shake well.
  2. Strain into a beautiful cocktail glass, an old fashioned, or high ball glass recommended though I think whatever you think is fabulous will suit.
  3. Enjoy with some vintage tunes playing!

I have a very sweet tooth so this cocktail was incredibly delicious for me, it was quite a strong flavour though this is more the sweet and sour combination but this does coat the taste of liquor very well. I recommend if this is a little too sweet for you to add this mixture in a glass and top with soda water. I also when researching found quite a few recipes with additional ingredients such as orange juice, lime juice, and other such things to alter the flavour which could be lots of fun to play around with!

I hope you all have an incredibly glamorous weekend! More fabulous vintage blogs are coming very soon!

Much love,
