No Monkey Business

Up until recently I was not very fond of gin. Then I discovered Hendricks and got hooked!
Today I bought a bottle of Monkey 47, a gin produced in the Black Forrest.

I googled it and read that they recommend making a Monkeypolitan with it. I couldn’t find a recipe for it online so I made up my own:

I mixed 2cl Cointreau, 4cl Gin, juice of half a lime and 1.2 dl cranberry juice.

Fan-bloody-tastic!
Next I invented the Monkeypom:

For the Monkeypom I mixed 4cl gin, the juice of half a lemon and 5cl of ginger ale and pomegranate juice each.

A ginny gingery pomegranny delight!
The monkey was well worth its money!
