Somebody gave me a bottle of Tanqueray London Dry Gin for my birthday last year.Thank you very much but I don’t really drink gin-wine lover since birth…. So what do you do with 40% spirit that you don’t like.Well there is only one single option-cocktails. Here is one I created recently.Strangely enough a friend visited me yesterday and I can tell you honestly- there is no bottle of Gin in my house anymore…..
As I’ve never created a cocktail in my life and didn’t have a name for it , so I decided to name it after my favourite Bulgarian singer –Preslava
. Why? Well Margarita is already taken hasn’t it?
4-6 strawberries or 8 raspberries
10ml ginger syrup
60ml Tanqueray London Dry Gin
10ml fresh lemon juice
10ml Elderflower soda (Bottlegreen from the UK is the best, in my opinion)
60ml pressed apple juice
Muddle the strawberries/raspberries in a shaker, then add other ingredients. Shake hard then strain over cubed ice in a hi-ball glass. Garnish with sliced lemon and a strawberry.Done.Remove the shade from your lamp, sit very close to it in a patio chair wearing sunglasses and sip the winter away…..
