Oh Gosh!

This drink was created by Tony Conigliaro in 2001 at the Isola bar in London, England. The name apparently comes from a customer requesting a twist on a daiquiri, and when tasting it exclaiming “Oohgoshh, gosh!”. It’s a nice story, but it sounds a bit trite to be true. I’m a cynic though, and I’m glad there aren’t drinks named after some of my initial exclamations.

  • 1½ oz Light rum
  • 1 oz Triple sec
  • ½ oz Lime juice
  • ¼ oz Sugar syrup

This wasn’t as tart or crisp as a daiquiri, which is to be expected. The orange liqueur gives it a lushness. This is one that will always have a place on my summer rotation
