The Tom Nichol's

Feeling inspired by the Faux Fancy ladies' post on the perfect bar, I wanted to share with everyone my new favorite cocktail recipe.
The Tom Nichol's.


1 ¼ oz.  gin
¼ oz. fresh grapefruit juice
¼ oz. fresh orange juice
¼ oz. fresh lime juice
¼ oz. fresh lemon juice
(Mike bought all this fruit and squeezed his own juice which we keep in bottles in the fridge)
½ oz. chamomile simple syrup (see below)
Ice cubes

Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail

Add all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled glass.

For the chamomile syrup: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and add a tablespoon of fresh chamomile or 1 bag of chamomile tea. Allow the tea to steep for about 3 minutes and turn off the heat and remove the bag (or strain out the chamomile). Add 1 cup of granulated sugar to the hot tea and stir to dissolve the sugar. Allow to cool and then transfer the syrup to a bottle and refrigerate.

  1. GIN! I have rediscovered my love for gin. I will have to make this!

    1. Our favorite gin is Hendrick's, but it's pricey so for this we just used Bombay. Tasty!!
