The Golden Gate Cocktail
3/4 Orange Ice. (2 scoops Ciao Bella Blood Orange Sorbet)
1/4 Gin. (1 oz No. 209 Gin)
Place in shaker and shake ~~ no ice.
Talk about drinking your dessert or adult candy!
Totally the proto slushy margarita here!
Perhaps because my sorbet was a bit cold, it was tough to get the pieces of sorbet to break up just by shaking. Probably get better results by buzzing this with a stick blender or malt mixer.
As a San Franciscan, I have to say I’m a bit disappointed that this kiddy cocktail seems to be named after our most impressive bridge. Still, with a decent sorbet, it’s a tasty and non-painful way to get your “Vitamin G”, as Herb Caen would put it.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
