Recently, I started paying more attention to the shelf of the "forbidden bottles" in pub's. I saw lots of time, a gin called Mare (reference here), which seems to be a very good bottle, with a particular "mediterranean" taste.

Except the classic gin tonic, is there some cocktail who enhance this particular gin?

I have not tasted that gin*, but from the description of the botanicals ("rosemary, thyme, olive, and basil") it seems to be crying out for savory rather than sweet. It sounds like a red snapper would be good (essentially a bloody mary with gin instead of vodka). Also sounds like a classic or dirty martini might be nice, depending on the vermouth on hand.

*yet... judging by the rave reviews I will have to try it soon!

  • i'll try the martini solution i think...sounds tempting (also i doesn't love bloody mary), glad to let you discover this bottle
