Cocktail Club | I Woke Up Like ‘Dis

Cocktail Club Logo

Another great HBN Cocktail Club is in the books!

This month, our hostesses Hollie and Gayle focused on created a cocktail based on three things: 1) a cocktail called The Fitzgerald, 2) ingredients they already had at home, and 3) keeping it simple and satisfying.

What they created was a beautiful, craft cocktail that anyone can wake up on a Sunday afternoon and make themselves.

I introduce you to the “I Woke Up Like ‘Dis” cocktail!

Cocktail Club

The Fitzgerald is a super simple cocktail and is a great base to build something creative from.

The Fitzgerald Cocktail

1.5 oz dry gin
0.75 oz lemon juice
0.75 oz simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

To change this great cocktail up, Gayle and Hollie chose to use Scrappy’s Lime Bitters (provided by Boozetique) in place of aromatic bitters. They also created a beautiful and delicious fresh ginger simple syrup that added a bit more depth to the flavor profile. Last, they really “summer-ed” up the cocktail by finishing it off with a dash of soda or tonic water. The little bit of effervescence made it so super refreshing!

I Woke Up Like Dis

1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 oz fresh ginger simple syrup
1.5 oz Beehive Jack Rabbit Gin
2 dashes lime bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe, top with soda or tonic, garnish with a lemon!

(To create the ginger simple syrup, add equal parts sugar and water and fresh ginger. Bring to a boil and stir until dissolved. Strain out the fresh ginger and refrigerate).

We had such a lovely afternoon with a huge group of smart, funny, beautiful women — enjoying cocktails and great company. Why doesn’t everyone do this EVERY Sunday?

I want to thank Gayle and Hollie for all the work they put into hosting such a fun and educational event and also everyone who filled our bellies with incredible food.

If you want a new summer go-to cocktail – the I Woke Up Like ‘Dis might be the one for you! And remember, all you have to do is have a nice bottle of gin, and open your fridge (you know, if you are an adult person who has produce).
