Knock Down Ginger
We’ve done the testing on this one and can confirm that it’s a winner. We’ve teamed up with our fellow award-winning neighbours – Gran Stead’s Ginger Co. – to bring you a delicious gin and ginger cocktail that is refreshing and perfect for the summer ahead.
Serves 1 drink: 50ml Brighton Gin (available to buy direct from us here) 5 x basil leaves 5 x mint leaves Half a lime Crushed ice Gran Stead’s Mellow Ginger Wine (amount depends on size of glass and personal preference)
- Clap the basil and mint leaves in your hands to release their flavours, then muddle them in the bottom of a tumbler glass.
- Next, squeeze in the juice of the lime and pop the rest of it into the glass.
- Pour in the gin
- Fill the glass to the top with the ice
- Top up with Gran Stead’s Mellow Ginger
- Gently stir
- Finally, garnish with a mint sprig (optional – it will still taste delicious)
