The following will be 1 of 3 cocktails that I made for a client. She threw a Great Gatsby party. I made three signature cocktails representing the three main characters of the story. Nick Caraway, Daisy Buchanan, and Jay Gatsby.
Ladies first, so we’ll start with Daisy. The Daisy cocktail actually has so many variations that it’s hard to keep track of. You might recognize some of these variations such as the Margarita, Cosmopolitan, and Sidecar, just to name a few.
Enjoy my version, which I’m sure isn’t an original riff!
