Tom Collins. Gin, lemon juice, sugar/simple syrup, seltzer.

Gimlet. Gin, Roses Lime. Alternately, use fresh lime and sugar.

White lady. 2:1:1 Gin:Orange Liquor:lemon juice.

Pegu Club. Gin, orange liquor, lime juice, 2 dashes bitters.

Orange Blossom: Gin and orange juice. Don't add too much juice.

Orange Fizz 5 Gin 5 Orange juice 2 Lemon juice 1 Gomme syrup (if you want, add soda .. but no need for that ) If you like basil, try out Basil Smash 5 Gin 3 Lemon juice 2 Gomme syrup 15-20 leaves of basil Muddle it, let it rest for some minutes, shake with much ice, double-strain. Voilà. And obviously Martinis You can try out Gin Fizz, too. It's a little more refreshing than Tom Collins (actually it's John Collins, just with "Old Tom" gin it's Tom Collins - also, add a dash of angostura !) 4.5 Gin 3 Lemon juice 1 Gomme syrup 8 Soda

Are those measurements in ounces? That's a strong fucking drink you make there my friend.

a lot of people rave about Chartreuse on the forum. tried some at a restaurant in SF last weekend. loved it and bought a bottle. wanted to make a cocktail with it so chose a Champs-Elysees and used this recipe:

Champs-Elysées
"¢1 1/2 ounces Cognac
"¢1/2 ounce green Chartreuse
"¢1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
"¢1/8 ounce simple syrup
"¢2 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

substituted Cognac with Armagnac because that's all i had. used a little more lemon juice but less simple syrup. all in all, a very interesting and complex drink. definitely a do over.

The Latour is the best of the finishes in the series. None of them are great though.
