A big thank you to our friend Jean Tomaro at Chicago’s newest hot spot Maude’s for the following Ransom Old Tom Gin cocktail. If you find yourself in the Windy City you deserve to treat yourself to a fantastic cocktail at Maude’s. Make sure to stay and eat as well, the food is fantastic.

.5 oz Ransom Old Tom Gin

add crushed ice, rock back and forth 3 times.
