I'm a self-confessed cocktail lover. Perusing cocktail menus (no matter where I may be) really is up there with being one of my favourite evening pastimes. So, when All Bar One invited me to try out one of their Cocktail Masterclasses*, I was instantly excited. No matter how many masterclasses (whether of the gin, wine, coffee or cocktail variety) I've completed in the past, I always look forward to experiencing all the different combinations I seem to learn every time I go. And this time was no different, with All Bar One's cocktail expert at Exchange Crescent, Michael, on hand to teach us his ways with this really tasty cocktail. It's got a tiny bit of a kick with the gin alongside the fruity mango puree. One to bookmark for all those summer BBQs coming up...
To make one Gin Sunrise cocktail, first get your tools and ingredients to hand!
- A cocktail shaker filled with ice
- A container (we used, errr... a waterproof noodle box - you could more sensibly use a collins glass!)
- A spirit measure
- A cocktail strainer
- A fine strainer
- 50ml Opihr Oriental spiced gin
- 10ml lime juice
- 12.5ml ginger and lemongrass cordial
- 50ml mango puree
- 50ml Dr Loosen Riesling
Measure out all of your ingredients into your cocktail shaker
Seal your cocktail shaker and give it all a good shake (I've been told 7 seconds is a good time to aim for!)
Double strain using both strainers into your tall glass
Sip and enjoy!
