This is inspired by the thud of our first home grown Citron de Menton dropping in to say – I’m ready use me! As well as the lemon I’ve used some rose syrup (Rose de Mai) and a sprig of rosemary to hit three of the twelve botanicals in our gin. In fact we use lemon zest and peel so technically four plus I garnished it with jasmine flowers and thyme, for six of the twelve. A delicious long drink.
- 50ml – Mirabeau Rosé Gin
- 20ml – fresh lemon juice
- 10ml – rose syrup (Sirop de Rose de Mai if you can)
- A hint of Grenadine
- 100ml – soda water
- A sprig of rosemary (gently bruised to release the aromas) mixed with a twist of lemon to oil the glass
- Take a long glass and moisten the rim with the fragrant rosemary and twist of lemon.
- Shake the Mirabeau Rosé Gin, fresh lemon juice, rose syrup and Grenadine together in an ice filled shaker.
- Strain into the ice-filled glass and top with soda water.
- Garnish with the rosemary, lemon twist, a couple of jasmine flowers if they happen to be growing in your garden and some sprigs of thyme.
- Bring on a few more lunch time revelations…….
