Oh Gosh!

Thank you for inspiration, Jay Hepburn, a cocktail enthusiast from England!


Oh Gosh!

30 ml light rum
20 ml Cointreau
10 ml fresh lime juice
5 ml gomme syrup
15 ml mineral water (sic!)
Shake. Cocktail. Garnish with lemon twist.

Эта пять! (Admirable!)

By the way. In Jay recipe specified “mineral water”, no soda water or simply water…
Therefore I prepare cocktail with the water and alkaline mineral water (my favorite
non-alcoholic drink) Borjomi. And I did not make a mistake! Version with Borjomi
has very smooth and “roundish” taste.

  1. Thanks for the shout out. The Oh Gosh! should definitely not be made with soda water, but to be honest I usually use plain old tap water rather than bottled mineral water. I haven’t had one for a while. but I will definitely have one over the weekend.

    Your liquor cabinet is quite something – that’s one comprehensive selection of Bols liqueurs!

  2. Thanks for comment.

    Really this cocktail is so interesting – my wife like it! But in my sity it is impossible to use tap water… I did not like chlorine on my cocktail.

    Unfortunately I did not translate my post about Mojito. In Mojito I use Borjomi too. I think the combination lime + Borjomi (natural sodium hydrocarbonate mineral water) work well. The taste result more smooth and … and… (lack of vocabulary) :)
