a gin drink someone posted here - help!

Ok,
someone posted a drink recipe that contained Gin, Ginger Ale Agnostura bitters and that's all I remember. I can't seem to find the thread.
Help me. It sounded good, I wanted to try it.
I have the Bombay, the Ginger Ale, the bitters, what I don't know is if that's it for ingredients, and what the proportions are.
Please help a thirsty man!

    * 1/2 oz gin
    * ginger ale

    Preparation:

    1. In a small glass, muddle the sugar, lemon zest, Angostura bitters and lime juice into a fine paste.
    2. Add the Limoncino Prestige.
    3. Stir until well blended.
    4. Using a small, fine strainer, pour the mixture into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.
    5. Add the gin.
    6. Top off with Ginger Ale.

    Thirsty Man,
    If push comes to shove, you have 2 of the key ingredients - Gin & Ginger Ale - Just pour yourself a tall one, squeeze a wedge of lime in it, sit back & enjoy!

    Regular Bombay?
    computes just fine.

    Even Sapphire with Tonic, or as a martini with a touch of vermouth and an olive.

    I guess I'm going to have to disagree with you RedJim64.

    I rarely mix top shelf liquor with too many mixers, since the mixers take away some of the flavor, but a Sapphire and Tonic or as a martini with vermouth is about as normal as it gets.

    I get regular Bombay for more complicated gin drinks.

    If anyone is scared of Gin but likes vodke may i suggest Bulldog gin. Comes across as a vodka. Also. Plymouth Gin has just released Plymouth Sloe Gin here in NJ though i have yet to try it.

    I did google Pimm's Cup and it sounds like a nice drink, but it's not it.

    I have gotten into Gin, Ginger with a dash of bitters and that's it. And it's not too bad. An orange wedge makes for a nice garnish.

    Scorereder, you as an old upstater, might be interested in the range of bitters sold by the Fee Brothers in Rochester, NY. One is an Orange Bitters that I've learned to use in a drinks and baking - real strong real orange flavor. They are on the web.

    Cheers, John
