Most know Hendrick’s Gin as the cucumber and rose infused gin that pairs perfectly with tonic, cucumber slices and ice cubes. Hendrick’s combines a distinct blend of eleven botanicals, and is hand crafted in Scotland in very small batches by William Grant & Sons, Hendrick’s is the only gin that uses a marriage of spirits from both a Carter-Head and Copper Pot Still, creating a divinely smooth gin that has both the required character and balance of subtle flavors.
They’re removing the ice cubes this winter to product a hot spiced apple cocktail – a hint of summer with the heat needed for winter. Best served in a porcelain teacup as always. Make your own:
750 ml Spiced Apple Juice (2 cloves, 2 crushed cardamom, 2 star anise, juniper berries, peel of 1 orange)
150 ml Hendrick’s Gin
Some Grated Nutmeg
Simmer the apple juice with spices in a pan
Add Hendrick’s Gin
Serve in a tankard or teacup and garnish with three slices of apple and a dusting of nutmeg.
