Not everyone is going to sit by the fire gazing at the stars whilst sipping a remarkably smooth splash of neat Campfire Gin, so here are some alternative serves.
A cocktail that derives from 3 types of tree – oak, beech and maple. It takes planning and dedication to prepare so do be aware that it’s not something you can concoct on the spare of the moment.
Equal measures of:
Campfire Cask Aged Gin
Beech leaf noyau (made with Campfire London Dry Gin)
Syrup (2 parts water, 1 part maple syrup)
In Spring collect the early beech leaf tips, wash and stuff as many as possible into a bottle of Campfire London Dry. Seal and put away in a dark cupboard for 3 weeks, shake every few days.
Strain into a clean bottle. This is the noyau.
Next make a syrup of water and maple syrup. Measure and combine the 3 ingredients into another bottle to mix them well.
Then pour into shot glasses and serve with dessert.
