Dancing Dog Gin

The one that started the dream to create the best hand-crafted spirits in the Northwest. A truly modern and vibrant London style gin with a bold juniper flavor laced with the warmth of coriander, cardamom, and orris root, layered with the refreshing flavors of lavender and chamomile, and finished with the cleanliness of grapefruit and lemon peel. Perfect on the rocks or in a classic cocktail, this gin makes an impression. And because the dog on the label is our beloved Candy, a rescued Boston terrier/pug mix, 50 cents of every bottle of Dancing Dog Gin purchased is donated to the Oregon Humane Society.

 

“Smooth, warmly aromatic and brightly flavored, Dancing Dog Gin is an excellent example of craft gin done right.” -The Gin is In

While our preferred way to drink Dancing Dog Gin is shaken with ice and poured in a martini glass with a pickle, Dancing Dog Gin is lovely in many drinks. Here are a few for you to play around.

DOGRONI

Ah the classic negroni! Who doesn’t like it? Dancing Dog Gin works beautifully with the bitterness of Campari and the herby vermouth. We have altered the ratios of the Campari and the vermouth so they don’t drown the floral notes of our gin. Saluti!

2 oz. Dancing Dog Gin
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. sweet vermouth
1 orange twist
Combine Dancing Dog Gin, Campari and sweet vermouth in an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass; stir gently and garnish with an orange twist. Can also be served straight up in a Martini glass.

DOGGIE ON A RAFT

We love the flavors of Raft Syrups and we made this drink for a tastings in Portland. It is one of our summer favorites!

2 oz. Dancing Dog Gin
1 TBS RAFT Hibiscus Lavender syrup
1 inch rosemary sprig + more for garnish
1 cardamom pod
1 oz. water
ice
In a shaker muddle cardamom, rosemary, and RAFT Hibiscus Lavender syrup. Add ice, gin, and water to the shaker. Shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass with a sprig of rosemary. Enjoy the swirl of aromatics!

DANCING GREYHOUND

This is our new favorite summer drink! It is particularly delish with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. The lavender and chamomile is just lovely with the grapefruit juice.

2 oz. Dancing Dog Gin
4 oz. grapefruit juice
Pour Dancing Dog Gin into a highball glass filled with ice.  Add grapefruit juice and stir.

GREYHOUND IN THE GARDEN

How can you not be silly with a gin named Dancing Dog? This is another version of our summer favorite greyhound.

Rosemary Simple Syrup

6 large sprigs of rosemary
Cocktail

Cocktail: In a highball glass filled with ice combine the Dancing Dog Gin, rosemary simple syrup and grapefruit juice. Stir to mix. garnish with a sprig of rosemary. Stir to mix. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

DANCING DOG GIN + TONIC

Dancing Dog Gin has floral forward notes which can clash with tonics that have intense flavors. We recommend a slightly sweet, more neutral tonic such as the good old Schweppes tonic or the extraordinary Q-Tonic tonic waters.

1.5 oz. Dancing Dog Gin
4.5 oz. Q-Tonic brand tonic water
1 lime wedge
Combine Dancing Dog Gin and tonic ice-filled highball glass; stir gently and garnish with the lime wedge.

.75 oz Punt E Mes Vermouth
1 sprig tarragon
Crush the sprig of tarragon in a shaker. Add the first three ingredients and ice to the in a shaker and shake vigorously. Serve in a coupe glass garnished with more whole tarragon.

THE GIN IS IN BERRY JAM

We love The Gin is In blog! Particularly the wife’s Berry Gin Jam recipe. You have to make some in the summer, when the berries are at their peak! Use Dancing Dog Gin to make it, and use it again to make yourself a great cocktail!

GIN AND JAM

We are so lucky to be living in the Northwest and its bounty of berries! The recipe in the Honestly Yum blog is really lovely and delish. This is an adaptation of the recipe with a little less lemon to let the lavender carry the berries.

2 oz Dancing Dog Gin
½ oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 teaspoon raspberry jam
spoonful of jam for garnish
Shake all ingredients vigorously with ice for about 10 seconds. Pour over a double old fashioned filled with crushed ice. Serve with the spoonful of jam.
