Winter is most definitely here. Lucky for us, then, that Dunnet Bay Distillers have a very special winter edition of their popular Rock Rose Gin. For this cocktail, simply add in some gingerbread syrup and pomegranate juice and you have one very delicious gin punch.
A Poinsettia is usually a champagne cocktail recipe which borrows a cranberry and orange flavour from Cointreau and cranberry juice.
This cocktail, however, enhances the hero ingredient of Rock Rose Winter Edition. The spruce tips of the gin are complimented by the gingerbread and pomegranate which allows the earthy and gentle citrusy notes to shine.
Simply add a berry garnish to enhance the vibrant colouring.
15ml lemon juice
15ml gingerbread syrup
Pomegranate juice – To top up
Berries (your choice) – To garnish
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker then add ice and shake until cold. Strain over fresh ice in a highball glass. Top with pomegranate juice.
