The Great Gama Recipe by Tobin Shea | The Silk Road Cocktail Collection

Follow Redbird Bar Director Tobin Shea’s simple instructions below for The Great Gama cocktail. The Great Gama was inspired by one of the world’s greatest Indian wrestlers of the same name. Shea wanted to highlight big flavors of curry, cumin, turmeric, bright citrus and smoky scotch when creating this drink.

1 ½ oz Black Grouse
½ oz Caperitif
½ oz Helbing Kummel
½ oz Madeira Rainwater
½ oz Lemon
¾ oz Preserved Lemon Syrup
4 dashes Badmaash Bitters
Lemon Twist

Add all ingredients into a shaker. Add a pinch of crushed ice and shake until you no longer hear the ice. Pour the drink over a glass full of crushed ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
