Mothers Ruin cocktail
In mid eighteenth century times in the U.K. people frequented gin houses more often than a traditional pub. Many a young man would go straight from the factories, mines and hard labour jobs and spend all of their money thus bringing nothing back home to the table. For this Gin received the nickname Mothers Ruin and this is what I have named the cocktail. Using traditionally English ingredients to combine into a semi sweet, refreshing cocktail.
