Have Your Citrus—and Put It in These 4-ingredient (or Fewer) Cocktails

October 30, 2015

Since we’re gin people, we’re making classic cocktails (and riffing off them) with Tanqueray No. TENToday: The illustration that'll solve all your gin drinking needs. 

What do a London Buck, Bee's Knees, and Gimlet have in common? While, "They're cocktails!" would be correct, the answer we're looking for is citrus. Whether it's lemon, orange, or lime juice, or a twist, a peel, or bitterscitrus adds that zest (both literally and not) to your gin drink. What's even better is when said cocktails are made with 4 ingredients or fewer (like below), meaning your bar can always be kept to a minimum, even when stocked.
