Share This Post

The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and it’s making us crave a delicious, fruity gin cocktail to enjoy in the sunshine.

So, we thought we’d rustle up a recipe for you to try out just in time for bank holiday weekend to serve at your Easter soiree to impress your guests – of course, the one key ingredient you’ll need is our Dragon Slayer Gin.

Have you got your shopping list at the ready? Great, grab a pen and write down these ingredients:

  • Sir John Conyers London Gin
  • Rosemary
  • Ice
  • Grapefruit & orange juice
  • Lime juice
  • Sparkling water
  • Cucumber (optional)

Once you’ve gathered all your ingredients, it’s time to dig out your cocktail shaker!

  1. First things first, you’ll need to safely set some rosemary alight, and set on a heatproof surface, then pop your glass of choice over the top and set to one side
  2. Add Dragon Slayer, fresh grapefruit and orange juice, lime juice and ice to a cocktail shaker
  3. SHAKE
  4. Strain into a glass filled with ice and give one final stir
  5. Garnish with rosemary and cucumber
  6. Enjoy!

Et vola! There you have it, a refreshing cocktail which will wow your guests.

The cocktail is fruity, bold and sweet, a perfect match for the warmer spring weather.

You can make this recipe as intricate or as simple as you’d like; we squeezed fresh grapefruit, oranges and limes, but of course, if you’re in a rush just grab a bottle from the supermarket!

We can’t wait to see your bank holiday creations – Happy Easter everyone.
