Jack & Jill {a gin clementine cocktail}

Every time I buy a bag of clementines, I think about making a cocktail with them. Then the kids eat them all and I’m left with nothing. But not this time. Oh no. I snuck a few of those little beauties and saved them for this gin clementine cocktail. Good thing too, because it was lovely.

Jack & Jill - a gin clementine cocktail

Originally I was going to make this cocktail with a rhum agricole. At the last second, I switched the base spirit to a gin I had recently received in the mail. It’s a New Western Style Gin produced by Beehive Distilling called Jack Rabbit Gin. It is distilled in Utah and made with seven botanicals including fresh sage and rose petals. It was a good switch.

A little bit of Genepy des Alpes brings in some herbal notes along with a little bit of sweetness. Coupled with the clementine oranges, I found that the drink didn’t need any additional sweetener. Of course, if you find that is not the case feel free to add in simple syrup (or honey syrup) to taste.

    Question: where can you get Génépy des Alpes? I’ve checked around here, but it seems to indeed be elusive! (I’m in Ontario, Canada.)

      Hi Karen,

      Genepy can be ordered through K&L Wines (although I’m not sure if they ship to Canada). Here’s the link so you can check it out: http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1137491

      However, if you can’t find it some substitutes you could try are Green Chartreuse, Dolin Blanc or Carpano Bianco. You might have to adjust ratios based on which one you use.

      Good luck and cheers!
      Jessica
