There’s not many things that say ‘picnic’ more than ginger beer, except maybe gin, so this cocktail using Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition is perfect for making outdoors.
- 50ml Rock Rose Summer Edition
- Juice of half a lime
- 50ml cassis (or substitute blackcurrant syrup for a lighter drink)
- A few mint sprigs
- 175ml ginger beer (a fiery one like Fentimans)
Rock Rose Gin Summer Edition
- Squeeze the lime juice into a tall glass, rub the mint between your hands and throw that in
- Half fill the glass with ice
- Add the gin and cassis, then pour over the ginger beer and give it a quick stir
It doesn’t need a shaker, so it’s nice and simple to make. You could also multiply the recipe and make this as a punch in a large bowl or jug. If you’re taking this on a picnic, you could pre mix everything apart from the ginger beer, then just pour over ice and top up with the sparkling ginger beer.
