Gin-Campari Old-Fashioned

  • TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 1 drink

Dave Kwiatkowski of The Sugar House creates this variation on an old-fashioned by swapping gin for the whiskey. A splash of Campari adds bitterness and a rosy color.

  1. One 2-inch-long strip of lemon zest
  2. 1 teaspoon Demerara simple syrup (see Note)
  3. 1 teaspoon Campari
  4. 3 dashes of grapefruit bitters
  5. Scant pinch of fine sea salt
  6. 2 ounces gin, preferably Knickerbocker or Beefeater 24
  7. Ice
  1. In a rocks glass, muddle the lemon zest with the simple syrup, Campari, grapefruit bitters and sea salt. Add the gin and a few ice cubes and stir until well chilled. Top with more ice and serve right away.
Notes To make Demerara simple syrup, in a small saucepan, dissolve 1/4 cup Demerara sugar (a coarse, raw cane sugar) in 1/4 cup water over moderate heat.
