It’s ironic how a word in Latin meaning “no one” is currently affecting everyone in New England. Nemo’s powerful gusts, heavy snow and angry squalls inspired us to concoct a cocktail incorporating potent Ouzo and snow-like crushed ice. When the harsh, Greek anise liquor hits the ice, it turns a stormy gray that mirrors the haze outside. Our concoction is a chilling yet warming beverage worth sipping while snowed in.
Lemon, Ouzo, and Ginger Cocktail
1 oz Ouzo
1 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
Pour the Ouzo, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Fill a cup with crushed ice and strain the shaken drink on top. Fill the glass with Ginger Ale. Garnish with lemon peel. Serves 1.
