Gin consumption in our household, has without a doubt, skyrocketed in recent months! We caught up with local company, Griffiths Brother to find out how we can pimp our gin and what what gin inspired cocktails we should be supping this summer. Here are their recommendations:
50ml Griffiths Brothers Autumn Special gin
25ml Giffard Abricot du Roussillon brandy
50ml fresh orange juice
Garnish with a Maraschino cherry
Griffiths Brothers Original Cucumber G&T
A favourite summer serve.
50ml chilled gin
Fever-Tree Elderflower tonic to taste
Large ice cubes
Garnish with thinly sliced cucumber (use a potato peeler) coiled around the inside of the glass.
Griffiths Brothers No.2 Signature G&T
The G&T taken to another level.
50ml of chilled gin
Fever-Tree Indian Tonic to taste
Garnish with a large slice of pink grapefruit peel and an aromatic sprig of thyme.
What grows together, goes together. In this Martini, the rhubarb blends perfectly with the herbaceous fennel note of our No.2 Gin.
60ml Griffiths Brothers No.2 Gin
60ml rhubarb syrup (2.5 sticks of rhubarb simmered with 1:1 cups sugar/water then blended)
7.5ml lemon juice
15ml dry vermouth
A few drops of Boker’s Bitters
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a trimmed rhubarb baton and a fresh fennel sprig.
Last word Cocktail
50ml of Griffiths Brothers No2
20ml green Chartreuse
20ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
20ml lime juice
10ml chilled water
