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.
Who says a gin cocktail needs to be cold. This potent combination is referenced in the writing of Dickins, Shakespeare and Pepys. It was believed to be the favoured morning tipple of Thames boatmen but would be equally warming under an Autumnal moonlit sky.
100ml Campﬁre London Dry Gin
300ml hoppy golden ale
150ml pressed apple juice
2cm cubed piece of fresh ginger
½ stick cinnamon
2 brown sugar cubes
2 teaspoons honey
Add the ale, apple juice, ginger and cinnamon stick to a pan and heat slowly, bringing it to a gentle simmer. After 10 minutes add the sugar. Continue to simmer gently for a further 10 minutes during which time you can toast some marshmallows over the ﬁre.
Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the honey until dissolved, add the Campﬁre Gin and divide into two tumblers. Garnish with toasted marshmallows.
