Malcolm Lowry Instructions
The Malcolm Lowry cocktail is a sophisticated and refreshing drink that combines the vibrant flavors of citrus and herbal notes. This cocktail is named after the famous British-Canadian writer Malcolm Lowry, known for his novel "Under the Volcano." Just like Lowry's writing, this cocktail is complex and full of depth.
To make a Malcolm Lowry cocktail, start by muddling a few fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a mixing glass. This will release the aromatic oils and add a subtle minty flavor to the drink. Next, add the juice of half a lemon and half a lime, along with a teaspoon of simple syrup. The tartness of the citrus juice is balanced by the sweetness of the simple syrup.
Once the mint, lemon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup are in the mixing glass, add 2 ounces of gin. Gin is the base spirit for this cocktail and brings its unique botanical flavors to the mix. Add a handful of ice to the mixing glass and stir well to combine all the ingredients.
To serve the Malcolm Lowry cocktail, strain it into a chilled coupe glass. A coupe glass is ideal for this cocktail as its wide bowl shape allows the aromas to develop and enhances the overall drinking experience. Garnish the cocktail with a sprig of fresh mint and a twist of lemon peel for added visual appeal.
Sip on the Malcolm Lowry cocktail and savor its refreshing and complex flavors. The blend of citrus, mint, and gin will transport you to a tropical paradise, making it the perfect cocktail to enjoy during warmer months or whenever you want to escape the ordinary.
Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
