bitter collins

1 1/2 oz Damrak Gin
1/2 oz Campari
1 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup

Build with ice in Highball glass, top with soda, and gently roll to mix. Garnish with a cherry and orange flag, and add a straw.
Two Tuesdays ago, Andrea and I ventured down to Deep Ellum for dinner. For a drink, Andrea asked bartender Danielle Berman for the Bitter Collins which seemed perfect for the warm weather. The drink began with an orange aroma from the garnish and prepared the mouth for the carbonated citrussy sip. Finally, a gin and herbal swallow ended with a tart lemon finish.
