I’ve been meaning to try my hand at some cocktails for ages so when this set of mini cocktail syrups caught my eye a couple of weeks ago it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I’m starting off simple, so this is a really straightforward recipe that doesn’t require any fancy equipment.
Admittedly, today’s recipe is more of a summery one, and indeed I made and enjoyed it in the slightly warmer climate of Malta last week. Returning to the baltic weather of Scotland after a week of 30 degrees sunshine has been a bit of a shock to the system, to say the least! Having said that, there’s no reason fun drinks should be limited to summer and perhaps a boozy, fruity gin daisy cocktail will be just the ticket to brighten up cold winter evenings!
Oh, and if this is all a bit too summery for you, I’ve got a super seasonal recipe coming up on Saturday 😉
- Ice cubes
- 40ml gin
- 25ml grenadine
- 20ml orange juice
- 1/2 lemon
- 150ml soda water
- Add the ice cubes, gin, grenadine and orange juice to a glass. Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon and top with soda water.
