It’s almost Halloween! Time for trick or treating, pumpkins and costumes as well as a good excuse to try some fantastically ghoulish gin cocktails.
A deliciously citrusy cocktail, the Bloody Orange gets an extra boost of booze from the needle full of cherry brandy.
To make it:
Fill a copa glass with ice. Shake the following ingredients together with ice: 1 and ½ shots of Silent Pool, ½ shot of triple sec, two shots of orange juice and a squeeze of lime. Strain into the glass then top with ginger ale. Garnish with a wedge of orange and inject with 20ml of cherry brandy
Swamp Swill Martini
An eerie twist on a classic, the Swamp Swill Martini is light, fresh and has the perfect amount of vermouth to scare of any creatures of the night!
To make it:
Fill a Gin Festival (or a Martini) glass with ice. Shake the following ingredients together with ice: 2 ½ shots Adnams Copperhouse, ¼ shot dry vermouth, ¼ shot brine and a sprig of fresh oregano. Next, empty the ice from the glass, strain the drink into the glass and garnish with a Palmetto Bug (an olive with chives for antennas).
Ramos Gin Fizz
Better than any concoction your local mad scientist can make up, Ramos Gin Fizz has been a staple of cocktail menus worldwide, thanks to its sweet and sour profile and fluffy mouthfeel.
To make it:
Fill a Gin Festival (or Collins) glass with ice then shake the following ingredients together without ice: 2 shots Jensen’s Old Tom, ½ shot lemon, ½ shot lime, ¾ shot sugar syrup, ⅛ shot orange blossom water, 3 drop vanilla extract, 1 fresh egg white and 1 shot single cream. Shake again with ice for 3 - 5 minutes. Empty the ice from the glass, strain the drink into the glass and top with soda
