Gin and Roses
The two drinks which perhaps we most associate with a British summer are gin and rosé wine. This cocktail recipe from Brockmans Gin is a marriage made in heaven as it combines both of these favourite tipples in a crisp, cold, sensuous cocktail.
This 40% ABV English gin is aromatic and intriguing. Brockmans has notes of blueberries, blackberries, Valencian orange peel and other summery botanicals such as coriander and angelica. Combine this distinctively delicious gin with ice and the scents and tastes of roses and you have a perfect concoction when only an iced cocktail will do.
Brockmans Gin Frosé
45ml Brockmans Gin
25ml Combier Rose liqueur
5ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice
100ml Sweet rosé wine

Add 45ml Brockmans Gin, 25ml Combier Rose Liqueur, 5ml Lemon juice and 100ml Rosé wine to a shaker and shake over ice. Then strain the contents into a large stemmed wine glass filled with crushed ice.
Alternatively add all the ingredients into a blender with ice cubes and blend until the ice is crushed, then scoop the frozen mixture into a large stemmed wine glass.
