Last month, Al (who runs the @alsbarblog instagram account) started a recurring event of sorts. At the beginning of each month, he would provide four paramters, and ask the drinkstagram community to come up with recipes based on them. In July they were whiskey, grapefruit, stirred, bitters. It was pretty fun to have a set of contstraints of sorts within which to work, and I came up with the Four to the Floor. This month the four elements are gin, lime, syrup, shaken. Surprisingly, I ran back the grapefruit, but in a totally different way.
