Merry Christmas friends! I hope you have had a lovely Christmas period and are looking forward to the New Year. We have had a perfect balance of time of time with family and friends, hosting Christmas and relaxing and I am feeling very grateful. I am packing my bags this afternoon ready for a trip to Berlin to bring in the New Year. Follow along on Instagram to see what we get up to.
In the meantime, I am sharing something delicious which I think you’ll love. Following on from the fabulous interview with The Little Gin Company a few weeks ago, they have been kind enough to share with us one of their favourite gin cocktails which would make the perfect perfect for New Years Eve tipple. If you are throwing a big party, a little soiree or just a quiet night in, this easy cocktail will elevate your New Year’s eve no end.
Pomegranate and Rosemary Gin Fizz
For two you’ll need:
50ml Gin (we love Stratford Gin for this)
50ml Pomegranate Juice
25ml Sugar syrup
25ml Lemon juice
Pomegranate seeds and rosemary to garnish.
Add the gin, pomegranate juice, lemon juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker along with ice and shake together (or you can stir in a glass with ice if preferred). Strain into a glass over ice, top up with the soda water and add a sprig of rosemary and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds to finish!
Voila! A delicious and impressive cocktail to get the party started.
The girls from The Little Gin Company recommend one of their favourite gin’s from their local town of Stratford: Stratford Gin from the Shakespeare Distillery. Sadly I didn’t have Stratford Gin so substituted it for one from my own selection.
