This cocktail was the winner of the Garden Party Cocktail Competition in Edinburgh. It’s a complex drink with a great contrast between the floral Caorunn gin and the bite of the whisky.
Gin tends to be a summer drink in my household, but this has changed my mind. The thistle gives it the last of winter, and the pink enables us to get a jump on summer.
A really cool thing at the Caorunn you can email this image and recipe to a friend. It’s all set up and easy to do–your name, their email address. Could be fun.
- 50ml Caorunn Gin
• 20ml Old Putney or other non-smokey whisky
• 20ml Raspberry gomme (gum)
• 1 Rosemary sprig
- Martini glass
- Stir all liquid ingredients in a Boston Shaker and strain into a chilled Martini glass, rim the glass with the rosemary sprig and discard.
