Let’s make a start…

Our blog is about to grow. We’ll be adding insights, flavour notes and recipes as our subscription boxes are sent out each month. However, to get us started, I wanted to share 3 Gin cocktail recipes – something for everyone. Something sour, something sweet and something refreshing.
The Gin Sour – perhaps an obvious choice
60ml Dry Gin
25ml freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
15ml pasteurised egg white (optional – personally, I’m not a ‘Sour” purist and prefer it without)
15ml Sugar Syrup (we like Monin’s best – works great in a coffee too)
3 dots of Angostura bitters
Add all ingredients over ice or chilled gin stones and shake, shake, shake. Strain into a petite vintage glass and enjoy with a maraschino cherry on top.
Apple, Elderflower and Gin Cocktail
125ml Cloudy Apple Juice
30ml Dry Gin
25ml Elderflower cordial (we really enjoy the Belvoir fruit farms variety)
Add all the ingredients to a shaker with a handful of ice. Shake and serve accompanied by fresh apple slices. Why not try adding a touch of cinnamon to the shaker to add a more autumnal twist?
Apple & Blackberry Gin Cocktail
50ml blackberry gin (there are a few out there but we like the Whitley Neill bottle for its woody notes)
25ml crème de mure
A good squeeze of fresh lemon
Cloudy apple juice, to top up
Soda water (optional)
Blackberries speared with a rosemary sprig for the final flourish
Combine the gin and crème de mure in a shaker filled with ice. Add a squeeze of lemon, then top up with apple juice (or half juice to half soda water, if you prefer). Garnish with your blackberry and Rosemary spear.
Give them a go and let us know in the comments below which you preferred and what you would like to see featured next.
