Tim Gunn Cocktail

Tim Gunn Cocktail

It's a curious name, the "Tim Gunn Cocktail"...

Why did we name this cocktail after Tim Gunn?  Because we can think of no better role-model than Mr. Gunn. He is the perfect example of poise, character, and sophistication wrapped with warmth and humility.  He's handsome and oh, so classy without being a snob.

We like Mr. Gunn, and we hope he'd enjoy this namesake cocktail.

1-2 oz Roundstone Rye whisky
½ oz Maple Syrup
½ oz Chai Pear shrub (make your own, or use Element Shrub from DC)
Splash of soda
Lemon peel garnish
Dash of cherry bitters

Mix the rye, maple and shrub in a cocktail shaker of ice. Strain into a rocks glass with a nice big ice cube. Splash in a little soda water, garnish with lemon, and add a dash or two of cherry bitters on top.
