Mama’s Winter Gin – Pomegranate, Elderflower & Blackberry Gin

SOMETHING ELSE?

Are you a Gin fan? If I’m honest with you I’ve never really been a Gin supporter. However I’m becoming a bit more partial to the odd Gin cocktail where you can subtly cover the taste with some fruit and still enjoy a refreshing beverage with a slight kick that won’t overwhelm you or linger in the back of your throat.

I bring you this refreshing and crisp cocktail perfect before a night out with friends or a relaxing after dinner cocktail with friends.

Ingredients

  • 25 ml Gin
  • 15 ml Pomegranate and Elderflower Cordial
  • 200ml Tonic Water
  • Orange peel
  • Crushed Ice
  • Blackberries

Method

1, Crush some ice and place this at the bottom of the glass. Pour in the cordial and the zest of an orange and two frozen blackberries.

2, Now add in the gin and finally top off with the tonic water. Try and make some bubbles whilst you pour this in.

3, The bubbles will cause everything to mix together, however if you see that the cordial is still a little syrupy then stir the cocktail a few times.

Alternatively, you can prepare the gin, ice and cordial with half the water in a cocktail mixer and shake everything together, pour it out and top up with the remaining tonic water, topping with the zest and blackberries.

This sounds so refreshing! I am not a huge gin fan either but may have to try this!

Thanks Rachel, i’ve enjoyed this one, there are so many different types of Gin sometimes it’s a case of trial and error until you find the one that you like best.
