Just in time for Galentine’s Day or Valentines Day – whatever you are into – or maybe just for a soirée you are throwing next weekend, this tasty tipple is a low in effort and high in reward.
I made this with Santory ROKU Gin, which is a lovely Botanical gin distilled in Japan.
Here is the recipe:
In a shaker combine
- 60ml Gin
- 30ml grapefruit cordial
- a few blocks of chopped cucumber
- 5 mint leaves
- 5ml rose essence or 10ml of rosewater
- lots of ice
Shake them together vigorously for 1 minute and strain into a glass of tonic water.
Give them a stir and garnish with a sprig of mint or a stick of cucumber
If you are having a few people over, you could make a bulk of the recipe and create a jug of this ahead, adding the tonic water (about 250ml per recipe above) and take the hassle out when your guests arrive.
Let me know how you go 🙂
