EASTER Alternative EASTER TIPPLES Wine’s lovely, there’s no question about that, but why not mix it up this Easter and introduce a couple of easy to make and even easier to drink cocktails into the mix? We’ve found a lovely little gin number that can be sipped throughout your meal and a delicious vodka ‘nightcap’ to end proceedings. BULLDOG TOM COLLINS With its unique bold, black bottle and distinctive botanical flavour, BULLDOG is a modern gin that has been quietly causing a stir on the gin scene. Made using only the best quality British wheat and water, BULLDOG starts as a triple-distilled, neutral grain spirit and is then distilled once more INGREDIENTS: • 60ml BULLDOG Gin • 30ml freshly pressed lemon juice • 30ml sugar syrup • 90ml premium soda water METHOD: 1. Shake the gin, lemon juice and syrup together with ice then pour over cubed ice in a Collins glass. 2. Top with premium soda water and garnish with a lemon twist and a maraschino cherry. THE NIGHTCAP This velvety smooth vodka is as untouched as possible. Made from the highest quality peaches and cream corn, distilled four times into a neutral grain spirit and blended with pristine water from Newfoundland, Canada, the liquid is then filtered seven times, of which three are through layers of semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. INGREDIENTS: • 50ml Crystal Head vodka • • 1 freshly brewed expresso shot • METHOD: 1. expresso into a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously to create froth then strain into a martini glass. 2. Garnish with chocolate shavings, finely Romney Marsh Brewery Hand-reared on the Kent frontier BREWERY SHOP NOW OPEN FRIDAYS SEE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS 97
