Here we will answer the age old question: what can you possibly mix with J&B? There are plenty of suggestions in bar books, but none have really flown in my household. When taking on a Giallo marathon we were stuck, once again, with finding a drink to make out of the famously Giallo J&B. We came up with:
- Finger of J&B (thus its name)
- splashes of Canton (ginger liquor) – maybe even a shot of it
- squirt lemon juice
- ginger beer – for the rest of the glass. The more, the weaker the drink.
A finger, by the way is when you have your hand wrapped about the bottom of a rocks glass so that your fingers make measurement lines up the side of the glass. This drink also works with Becherovka – a crazy bitter slavic drink that also doesn’t taste good mixed with anything.
