The Moonstone

A spice-infused cocktail with curry and coconut notes. Some of the measures for an individual serving are pretty small, so you might find it easier to do a batch for a crowd. But then it’s something you’d want to do for guests anyway. You’ll need time to infuse the gin, so you might start that before your friends show up.

The Moonstone
  • 1 1/2 oz curried gin (see below)
  • 1/2 oz Malibu coconut rum
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon syrup
To make curried gin, use:
  • 2 pinches garam masala
  • 1 pinch yellow curry powder
  • 1 pinch ground coriander
For each
  • 1 1/2 or 2 oz London dry gin (I use Tanqueray)
Measure the spices into a small mixing bowl. Combine spices with gin in a mixing glass, and infuse 5 minutes. Strain the gin through a fine strainer. (A paper coffee filter will do it, though it takes several minutes.)

To assemble the cocktail:

Combine rum, lime and syrup in a shaker with infused gin. Add ice, stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a small wedge of lime or a lime twist.
