Gin Fix:
2oz gin
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2-4 dashes of cocktail bitters (your choice as to which variety!)
(optional: 1 egg white)

Place all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and shake very well for 30 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.

Gin Smash:
2oz gin
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon
a few pieces fresh fruit and/or herbs (get creative! yesterday I served up strawberry-tarragon smashes out of my garden, and they were perfect)

Place fruit, herbs, and sugar in a shaker. Mash the fruit and herbs with a muddler or the back of a heavy spoon. Add the gin and lemon, and fill shaker with ice. Shake very well and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a bit of the herb or fruit you used.

The events (6/19-- Gin, 6/26-- Whiskey) are held at SpeakEZ Lounge at 7pm
