Bombay Sapphire Dry Gin 

Use Bombay Sapphire this Christmas to make some yummy cocktails, for something a bit different ;-)

Here is one to get you started:


50ml Bombay Sapphire infused with sultanas
100ml Fever-Tree tonic water (chilled)

Tall highball glass
Ice: Cubed ice
Garnish: Orange peel twist and sultanas spiked along a cocktail stick

Method to make the sultana infused Bombay Sapphire:
Take a full bottle of Bombay Sapphire and pour about 50ml out of it into a glass
(this can be used to make your next G&T!). Now using a pin, prick 50 grammes
worth of sultanas and drop them into the bottle (therefore filling up the space).
Close the bottle with the cap and shake well. Keep in a warm place for 1 week
shaking often ie once per day. After 7 days your sultana infused gin will be ready
to make your cocktail.

Method to make the cocktail:
Fill a tall highball glass full of cubed ice. Pour in 50ml of the sultana infused Bombay Sapphire
and stir briefly. Now pour in half (100ml) a bottle of the chilled Fever-Tree tonic water and
gently stir again. Spritz the orange peel over the top of the glass then add to the sultanas on
the cocktail stick and place on top of your creation with a straw. Enjoy!
