We teamed up with a master mixologist to create this scrumptious blend using a variety of ingredients plucked fresh from the kitchen garden. A crisp and flavoursome beverage, this cocktail is the perfect way to enjoy your harvested homegrown goodness. Infused with sweet garden-grown apples and garnished with sprigs of fresh mint, let’s take a trip into the garden and discover how you can create your very own Autumn Apple Blend this cosy cocktail season.
Ingredients (for 1 serving):
35ml of gin
15ml white vermouth
30ml elderflower cordial
50ml apple-infused whiskey
25ml lemon juice
25ml sugar syrup
1 egg white
Soda water to top
Ice (as much as preferred)
2 slices of apple
2 sprigs of mint
Firstly, collect a handful of apples fresh from the garden. You then want to use these to create your very own apple infused whiskey. The whiskey can take 1-2 weeks to prepare, so make to leave yourself enough time if you’re making these drinks for a specific autumnal occasion.
Once the apple-infused whiskey has marinated to your liking you can then go ahead and begin making your cocktail. Add the gin, white vermouth, elderflower cordial, whiskey, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white into your cocktail shaker and give it a good shake.
After you’ve shaken your cocktail and mixed all the ingredients together you can then go ahead and add in your ice. When the ice is added, make sure to give your cocktail another generous shake!
Now that your cocktail is well mixed you can then go ahead and strain your drink over a handful of ice. To give your cocktail the wow factor, make sure to garnish your glass with slices of apple and sprigs of mint.
And finally, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! It’s time to grab a blanket and snuggle down with this cosy garden-inspired cocktail. Guaranteed to get you feeling all warm and toasty inside, complete the scene with a seasonal movie and start your autumn off with the flavoursome tastes of fruits and herbs found within your very own garden.
