Gin is a great spirit to use for “quarantine cocktails”. There are so many many gins to choose from, but when there is doubt a small batch gin like Madam Pattirini by Ogden’s Own Distillery is the perfect addition to your home bar. The name is inspired by Brigham Morris Young who appeared in public in drag as Madam Pattriini from the 1880’s to early 1900s. Who knew Utah had it going on like that back in the day? nly 1,000 bottles of the gin are made during production.

A good cocktail is great but paired with the right thing on Netflix, makes for the perfect pairing.The following are movies or shows to stream with a gin cocktail featuring Miss Pattrini Gin that makes viewing even better.

Extraction- Negroni

When I found out about Extraction, I just thought that the plot was  watching a hot Aussie for a few hours while sipping wine. Some have compared it to John Wick. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but it’s to see Chris Hemsworth play a dark and brooding character. It’s a nice fit for him. Long story short, all of the explosions, fighting, and testosterone makes for a good time.

A Negroni is the perfect pairing for this on, A little bit bitter, mysterious and badass, kind of like the movie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce Madam Pattirini gin

  • 1 ounce Campari

  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth

  • Garnish: orange peel

Directions: Add all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice, and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with large ice cubes. Garnish with an orange peel.

 

Hollywood- French 75

When it was announced that Ryan Murphy would be teaming up with Netflix, it was a big deal. What would our mastermind bring to the table? First up is Hollywood, which  gives a glamourous fictional look inspired by some screen legends. While the show takes liberties, it gives a glimpse into the Golden Age of cinema.The perfect cocktail to pair is the French 75, an elegant classic cocktail that was popular during Prohibition. It has celebrities and good times written all over it. I highly recommend using a cremant or cava as the sparkling wine if you aren’t going to go with Champagne.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 oz f resh lemon juice

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

  • 1 oz  Madame Pattrini Gin

  • 3 oz Champagne
