The French Bulldog you Drink!

Over the years, we’re mentioned cocktails named after dog breeds, from the Regal Beagle and Great Dane, to the Pomeranian  and Bloodhound Martini. If you prefer scotch whiskey, for you there is Bird Dog Whiskey. 

We’re adding another adult beverage to the mix (ha, a pun), and this one is the French Bulldog. It gets its name from a combination of Bulldog gin and French sounding ingredients like crème de cassis and elderflower. Enthusiasts also hint that the drink may require attention like its dog counterpart.

  • 4-6 oz. Bulldog Gin
  • 1 oz. elderflower syrup
  • 3/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. crème de cassis
  • 2-3 sage leaves

Interestingly, we came across variations of the recipe, one of which seems like a different drink altogether:

This one shares tin and elderflower liquor:

1.25 oz gin
1 oz Texas Rio Star red grapefruit juice
1 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1.25 oz Dry Lemongrass Soda

Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass (a pint glass works well) full of ice. Stir for 30 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass.

Another recipe may appeal to people who don’t like gin:

In a cocktail shaker add:

  • 1 ounce of Bourbon
  • 1 ounce of Averna
  • 3 quarters lemon juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • Shake with ice
  • Strain into a glass
  • Add ice
  • Garnish with lemon twist
