Seren's Fovourite Recipes
Eastern Promise Gin INGREDIENTS:
750 ml gin
100g chopped rose Turkish delight
1 tsp rosewater
280g white sugar METHOD: Place the rosewater and chopped Turkish delight in a kilner-style jar with the sugar and gin. Give it a jolly good stir, then store in a cool dark place and shake every day for a week. Sample after seven days and add more sugar as necessary. It should be ready after two weeks. Delicious served on the rocks.
Marmalade Gin INGREDIENTS:
The peel of 4
225g of granulated white sugar
1 star anise 1 whole cinnamon stick
1. Carefully pare the orange rind (avoiding the bitter pith) and add to a kilner preserving jar. 2. Add the cloves, star anise and cinnamon stick and the sugar. 3. Pour in the gin and stir. 4. Leave the bottle in a prominent place for a few days and shake every morning and evening to dissolve the sugar. 5. After a week, place the bottle in a cool, dry place for two weeks, then decant into bottles. I’ve managed to keep a bottle of this for two years and it only improved with age.
The next step is to buy some gin and get experimenting. I'd love to hear how your experiments turned out, and if you have any questions, you can always drop me a line at email@example.com.
