Summer Blossom

Floral with a hint of fruit and bergamot – that’s Summer Blossom, full of the hopes and flavours of the early warm months.

Enjoy gin with a spot of elderflower mixed with cloudy apple juice and syrup made from Earl Grey tea to conjure up this quirky mix of tea time, apple orchards and blooming elderflower, all in one glass.

Ingredients

Serves:

1

  • 40mlGin

  • 20mlSauvignon Blanc

  • 20mlCloudy Apple Juice

  • 15mlEarl Grey Syrup

  • 1sprig(s)Elderflower

1.7 units of alcohol per serve

Equipment

  • 1 x Strainer

     

  • 1 x Jigger

  • 1 x Sieve

  • 1 x Cocktail Shaker

Method

  • Ice

    Fill a cocktail shaker with cubes of ice.

  • Pour

    Using a jigger, measure 40ml gin with a spot of elderflower, 20ml Sauvignon Blanc, 20ml cloudy apple juice and 15ml Earl Grey syrup into the shaker.

  • Mix

    Shake the mixture vigorously in the cocktail shaker until the surface of the shaker feels chilled.

    Strain the liquid into a Coupe glass through both a cocktail strainer and sieve. This is to remove any trace of ice or solids, and is a technique known as ‘double straining’.

  • Garnish

    Place a sprig of elderflower on top of the drink to garnish.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
