Thank you, everyone, who came out for week 3 of the Black Orchid Club, and to those of you following and playing along with us on Twitter!
The featured cocktail was Rhapsody in Blue. Rhapsody is a twist on 1920s style gin cocktails, with the addition of fresh ginger and muddled fresh blueberries, and a ginger simple syrup, which I make with fresh juiced ginger (try squirting that in your eye – ! ). I use Martin Miller’s Dry Gin, one of my favorite gins.
It was also International Flight Lounge, with DJ Jab – so along with our cocktails we had the swingin’ 60s sounds of lounge, Ye Ye, French Pop and go-go fabulousness!
For those of you who missed it, this is the card from week 3:
Tonight is week 4, so I’ll see YOU at the Island!
