In this drink, rosemary syrup and smoked bitters combine Cointreau and smooth Brockmans Gin with a hint of smoke, to create an intriguing and sophisticated concoction. Rosemary is known for its ability to awaken the senses. This heady mix of orangey, smokey, rosemary notes is a delicious and heady mixture.  Prepare ahead for this cocktail as you need to create the rosemary syrup in advance.

Brockmans Smokey Rosy


50ml Brockmans Gin

25ml Lemon Juice

25ml Rosemary Syrup (homemade)

10ml Cointreau

Fresh sprig of rosemary

Dash of Orange Bitters


Rosemary sprig



*Rosemary syrup is made by steeping rosemary tea or fresh rosemary in a teapot with a 1:1 mix of sugar and water. Strain and bottle.

Light a sprig of rosemary and place it on a heatproof surface putting a Collins glass, upside down, over it. Allow the smoke from the rosemary to swirl around the glass to scent it.

Meantime, add all the ingredients to a shaker full of ice. Hard shake, fill the scented Collins glass full of ice, and pour over the ingredients. Garnish with a fresh sprig of rosemary.
