Aphrodite’s Rickey

I was treated by That Boutique-y Gin Company to a fabulous summer gift in the form of this rather glorious OMGin box, which contained three bottles of deliciousness! Finger Lime Gin, Cucamelon Gin and Strawberry & Balsamico Gin.

 

Friday night most certainly reeks of cocktails, so here is a little recipe to kick off your weekend!  For this cocktail you’ll need a bottle of the Strawberry & Balsamico Gin.  Fresh strawberries, strawberry and black pepper distillates and “the very finest balsamic vinegar money can buy*” are added to a classic gin base to create this fruit gin.

You’re going to need:

  • 1 squeezed lime wedge
  • 25 ml pomegranate juice
  • 50 ml Strawberry & Balsamico Gin
  • 100 ml soda water
  • Ice

Firstly squeeze a wedge of lime into a Collins glass.  Next, pour in 25ml pomegranate juice, followed by 50ml Strawberry & Balsamico Gin.  Fill your glass to the top with ice and top up with soda water.  Carefully combine the mixture and enjoy.
