Sultana infused gin
This golden little gem incorporates sultana infused Bombay Sapphire and Fever-Tree tonic water to create a sumptuous twist on the classic G&T, perfect for the season.
50ml Bombay Sapphire infused with sultanas
100ml Fever-Tree tonic water (chilled)
Garnish: Orange peel twist and sultanas spiked along a cocktail stick
Method to make the sultana infused gin:
Take a full bottle of Bombay Sapphire and pour about 50ml out of it into a glass (this can be used to make your next G&T!)
Now using a pin, prick 50 grammes worth of sultanas and drop them into the bottle (therefore filling up the space).
Close the bottle with the cap and shake well. Keep in a warm place for 1 week shaking often ie once per day. After 7 days your sultana infused gin will be ready to make your cocktail.
Method to make the cocktail
Fill a tall highball glass full of cubed ice.
Pour in 50ml of the sultana infused Bombay Sapphire and stir briefly.
Now pour in half (100ml) a bottle of the chilled Fever-Tree tonic water and gently stir again.
Spritz the orange peel over the top of the glass then add to the sultanas on the cocktail stick and place on top of your creation with a straw.
