Spirits Hunters cocktail of the week with a twist: Red Rum/Raspberry
Illustration: Spirits Hunters
Red Rum, our cocktail of the week with a twist, replaces a measure of sloe gin with a lightly raspberry-infused London dry gin.
A cocktail you can make at home with a few basic ingredients. Originally prepared with a scoop of Sloe Gin: a brief introduction to the spirit tradition, we replace this ingredient with raspberry-infused gin. If you wish, you can also replace it with a measure of blackberry liqueur or blackberry jam.
For 2 glasses
1 handful of redcurrants
1 scoop of raspberry-infused gin
4 measures of traditional rum (one 8 years old)
1 measure of lemon juice
1 scoop of vanilla syrup
Strawberry and rosemary for garnish
Type of glass: Martini (let cool in the refrigerator)
Preparation: Add the currants and gin to a shaker. Crush it all. Add the rum, lemon juice, vanilla syrup and a few ice cubes. Shake then filter twice. Pour into the Martini glasses. Decorate each glass with a strawberry cut in half.
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
