SHAKE UP A ST NICHOLAS
Infusing Salcombe Gin with Christmas pudding transforms it into an amazing seasonal treat.
Crumble a Christmas pud into a bowl and pour over a bottle of ‘Start Point’. Cover tightly and leave to infuse for 48 hours. Once the gin has turned a deep golden colour, strain it and set aside.
For the cocktail, pour 50ml of your Christmas Pudding gin into a cocktail shaker with 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice and 1½ tsp each of vanilla syrup and pumpkin spice syrup. Fill with ice and shake till cold. Strain the mixture, discard the ice then shake again with foaming bitters. Strain into an ice-filled tumbler and adorn with a slim cinnamon stick.
