Rosewater and Orange Gin & Tonic

After a long and stressful week there is nothing better than coming home, meeting with some friends and letting the week unwind over a tasty G&T.

Gone are the days when a standard G&T was the go-to – now we are surrounded with opportunities to really spice up a simple classic.

Zesty, floral and autumnal twist on an old classic – I have been working on the perfect serve creating Rosewater and Orange Gin & Tonic Cocktail using Bombay Saffire gin to share with you all.

This cocktail was inspired by the change in season, this is the perfect way to unwind after a long week.

With delicate floral notes, blended with the citrus of orange and mixed with the soft botanical’s of the gin, it has a romantic and elegant touch – perfect for any occasion.


Recipe

  1. Add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small pot and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let it cool and add in 1 teaspoon rose water extract.
  2. Chill the syrup in the fridge to allow to cool.
  3. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour in the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup and shake for more than 20 seconds so the ice can melt and dilute the ingredients.Rosewater and Orange Gin & Tonic , cyntra, cyntra charlesworth, cyncity
  4. Using a knife carefully, gently spiral the peel of a fresh orange to get that beautiful orange zest.
  5. Strain over a large ice cube and garnish with the orange twist and rose petals.

Pour in the tonic water, then the gin, then the rosewater, and top off with a bit more ice.
