Items You’ll Need:
Method: Orkney Johnsmas Gin is inspired by the long, clear days of an Orkney summer. Fragrant, fresh and light, Johnsmas Gin is crafted using a variety of hand picked seasonal botanicals from their islands and beyond to capture the clean and refreshing floral notes of midsummer. To make this tasty cocktail simply press sliced lime against the bottom of a lowball glass with a bar spoon or muddler, to release the citrus juice. Add Orkney gin, pomegranate juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds, or until chilled to desired temperature. Pour over ice into prepared lowball glass, and top with club soda. Stir gently to combine. Garnish with pomegranate seeds, and enjoy!
Method: Nestled in the heart of Angus, Hatton of Ogilvy Farm reclines across rich land of rare heritage, tended by a family for four generations! To make this classic cocktail simply combine all of your main ingredients together and stir to 50% dilution. Pour the liquid into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with Amarena cherries or a tantalizing orange twist.
* To make syrup from scratch add one cup of white sugar to a pan and cook on a medium-to-high heat until it dissolves. Leave it for a few minutes to cool down, then tip in one cup of boiling water and a teaspoon of rock salt, before stirring until fully mixed. Note that the reaction between the hot caramel and boiling water can create a large amount of steam, or spoil the syrup, so add the water in one go and make sure the pan has cooled to prevent this.
