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.
Created specially for one of our dining at the distillery events, this bold cocktail works on it’s own and really well when paired with red meats as an alternative to a red wine. For a bit of theatre and to really separate out the port from the apple juice/gin mix, use a syringe or pipette to inject it into the bottom of the glass.
25ml Campfire Navy Strength Gin
20ml Ruby port
50ml Apple juice, clear
Dash of orange bitters
Thin slice of fresh ginger to garnish
Shake some ice cubes, the gin, apple juice and the bitters vigourously in a cocktail shaker and strain into chilled martini glasses. Pour the port gently down the side of the glass so it sinks beneath the gin and bitters. Add the ginger slice.
