A healthy glug of gin, somewhat more campari, big splash of lemon juice, small spoon of bergamot lemon marmalade, half a lemon slice and a sprig of rosemary; shaken rather aggressively with some ice, then strained over a few more ice cubes, topped off with tonic water and garnished with that sprig of rosemary and the other half of the lemon slice.

Pleasantly sour-bitter, quite appropriate for this election night here in Austria which is leaving me sad, mad, angry, scared & sick to my stomach in the face of just how many people here seem to prefer the state of this country (or that neighbouring larger one’s) about 75 or more years ago.

The cocktail, of course, does not change a thing, but it is numbing the pain a little bit; and delicious.

Thanks so much for the kind words! I’m not a very big cocktail drinker/maker but this one turned out pretty delicious :)
