Harrogate Tipple's Perfect G&T
We're so lucky that botanical small batch distillery, Harrogate Tipple, showed us the secrets to fine flavours, to make the perfect G&T. They've even shared their recipe with us here, so you can get practicing for those warm summer evening garden parties!
What you will need:
- Ideally a copa glass (gin bowl glass), 1 potato peeler, stirring implement (long spoon)
- 1 x Bottle (or half!) of Classic Gin. Anything classic and premium, or even London dry.
- A couple of limes, cucumber, lemon juice.
- Sugar syrup/honey.
- Ice and sparkling water/club soda.
- Tonic: Something Citrusy (mediterranean Fever Tree) Any light tonic or lemonade for those that don't like tonic.
- Sparkling wine which can be Prosecco, Cava, Champagne or any wine that sparkles!
- With your potato peeler, shave long strands of the cucumber off and put them aside. (keep the juice of the cucumber to add if required after).
- Add ice to your glass and pour a little sugar syrup into the glass also. Around a teaspoon full or sweeten how you like! Follow with the strands of cucumber - no more than three evenly spread.
- Add your gin, a large amount of course! We recommend a plentiful double shot. Stir through the gin and syrup together with the cucumber strands.
- Now open your bottle of fizz (Prosecco, Champagne or Cava etc..) so it’s fresh with bubbles and top up the glass. Gently stir together making sure your stirrer hits the bottom of the glass.
- Add a splash of soda water (with a dash of lemon or lime juice or) or lemonade. Stir again then and enjoy!
