Classic Cocktails made with New Bloomsbury Gin


There is no spirit with as rich and colorful a history as gin. The original spirit in some of the most famous cocktails (Martini, Negroni, and Gimlet to name a few), its versatility when it comes to flavor profile enhancement makes gin a bartender’s favorite. Recently, Tanqueray launched Bloomsbury, a new limited-edition gin based on an 1880s-era recipe created by the son of brand founder Charles Tanqueray. To celebrate its arrival to the market and the end of summer cocktail season, Rachel Ford, Tanqueray National Brand Ambassador, has incorporated Bloomsbury into classic cocktail favorites for your readers to enjoy.

Martini 50/50: as the name suggests, this cocktail uses an equal amount of ingredients
Bees Knees: this drink dates back to prohibition, and is slang for “the best”
Last Word: created in 1922 at the Detroit Athletics Club, its popularity was revived in the early 2000s.
Bloomsbury Buck: a cousin of the highball, it was created at the Savoy Hotel Bar during the 1920s.
