Recipe: Sunny Days Cocktail
- 25ml Chase Seville Marmalade Gin
- 50ml Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
- 10ml Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar
- 10ml Honey Water
- Top up with Soda water
- (Option to add a splash of tonic water)
Shake or Build
Thyme & Orange Slice
How to Make:
Build directly into the glass or combine all of the ingredients into your shaker except the soda water. If shaking give a quick shake to mix the ingredients. Top up with soda water and optional tonic water (it doesn’t need it but if you’re a big fan of tonic you might like it!) and garnish with a beautiful slice of orange and some fresh thyme. Et voila it’s ready for you to enjoy!
Home-made Ingredient - Honey Water:
Honey water is a great way to balance your cocktail without adding anything nasty or making it too sweet.
Pick a good quality of honey ideally something from your local farmers. Did you know that eating honey that has been made in your area can help with allergies like hay fever as the bees have pollinated flowers you are in contact with?
Equal parts honey and hot water
Stir until you melt the honey
Keep the honey water in the fridge
(it will last a week or more)
