Okay, so I cheated; I told you I was going to make four cocktails (see my previous apple whiskey cocktail here), but I've bent the rules and made shots. Cranberry gin shots, to be exact.
Now I know that I went back on my word, but I'm not entirely cheating - you can actually make your own cocktail with this recipe. Just use less gin (or the same amount - this is entirely acceptable) and pour the mixture into a a glass instead of shot glasses. Et voila, a cocktail you have.
I N G R E D I E N T S
(serves 4 shots)
- 100ml Oliver Cromwell London Dry Gin*
- 25ml Lime Juice
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- Cranberry syrup (made with dried cranberries, 200ml water and 1tbsp caster sugar)
M E T H O D
1. Heat the dried cranberries in the water over the stove. Add in the caster sugar and stir until the water thickens and takes on a deep pink colour.
2. Strain the mixture into a cocktail shaker, add in the rest of the ingredients, shake for around 10 seconds, then strain again to get rid of the ice.
3. Pour into shot glasses.
