Half a very ripe mango
The pulp of two passion fruits
10ml of sugar syrup
15ml of lemon juice
Glass: Old Fashioned Tumbler

This is such an easy and delicious way to jazz up a glass of Prosecco, and another way to enjoy Sloe Gin.

This could not be more straightforward, simply add the Sloe Gin into a glass and top up with a good quality Prosecco. Most importantly enjoy, one of these will not be enough.
Ink Gin Martini
Ever thought of using a colour changing gin in a Martini? It is a great way to drink fabulous gin and impress guests with something that is eye catching yet easy to make.
We took inspiration from Husk Distiller’s, Ink Gin and recreated the Inkwell Martini.
Ink Gin (large measure!). If you do not have Ink Gin then do use a colour changing gin of your choice
Fill a mixing glass with ice, add dry vermouth and stir well (no shaking!). Strain vermouth out. Pour Ink Gin over the vermouth laced ice in mixing glass and stir well until chilled. Strain into a Martini glass and garnish with an orange twist, be sure to squeeze the peel to extract the orange oil.
