Monkey 47 – Gin and Sin

Monkey 47 gin comes from the Black Forest in Germany.  This gin was created by a retired British commander who settled in Germany’s Northern Black Forest.  Missing his favorite alcohol, he experimented and distilled a gin made from 47 different plants and herbs.

We’ve had this unopened bottle since we left Germany, about 3  1/2 years ago. Finally working up our courage, we made this exotic cocktail for a snowy afternoon.

Gin and Sin

1 1/2 ounce Monkey 47

2 ounces orange juice

1 tbsp lemon juice

Splash of grenadine

Ice ( 3 small cubes)

Place all ingredients in a shaker, shaking until chilled.  Pour into a cocktail glass and sit down somewhere.
