I have been thinking of new ways to use two of my favorites, Tanqueray Rangpur Gin and Domaine Canton ginger liqueur. Both are distinctive and unusual. Rangpur is a heavy-lime scented Gin and Canton is a spicy ginger-flavored liqueur from France.
The color of the Jitney Ride is much like a fresh gimlet, a foggy green. The Canton gives it a little ginger heat. Try this before your next Asian-inspired meal.
The Jitney Ride (From the Cork Dork Wine Blog) makes one drink.
1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. Domaine Canton liqueur
1-1/2 oz. Tanqueray Rangpur Gin
Fill a martini glass with ice while you build the drink. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add lime, then Canton, finally the Gin. Shake vigorously. Toss out the ice in the martini glass and strain cocktail into the martini glass. Garnish with a paper-thin lime slice.
