Previous Cocktails of the Week

The Negroni:

The classic Negroni relies on a 1:1:1 ratio but we find bumping up the proportion of Gin provides for the best results. 

50ml Hexham Premier Cru  

25ml Campari

25ml Sweet vermouth (Carpano Antica or Cinzano Rosso for example).

 

In a mixing glass, give all three ingredients a few quick turns over very cold ice until blended. Strain into a glass over even more ice and garnish with an orange twist. Try it over a large block or sphere of ice so that it stays chilled but doesn't get over-diluted

The Orange Blossom:

50ml Hexham Premier Cru  

100ml Lemon Tonic water (Fevertree for example)

100ml Orange Blossom Honey (but any honey will do)

Ice

 

Drizzle the honey into a large glass and add the gin. Stir to fully mix and then add plenty of ice. Top up with the Lemon Tonic water and stir to combine. Garnish with an orange twist and add a straw. It's the essential oils of the Orange that gives the drink its flavour and aroma.

The Classic Martini 

50ml Hexham Premier Cru  

25ml Dry Vermouth 

 

Pour the gin and dry vermouth over ice in a shaker.  Depending on your James Bond preferences, stir or shake to mix. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with olives and/or a twist of lemon peel or slice.

The Tom Collins  

60ml Hexham Premier Cru  

30ml fresh lemon juice

20ml sugar syrup

Soda water 

 

Named after a hoax that was doing the rounds in 1874, the Tom Collins has immortalised itself into one of the most iconic gin cocktails around.

 

Throw some ice into a large glass. Pour in the gin, lemon juice and syrup and stir well. Top up the glass with Soda water, garnish with an orange slice or twist, add straws and serve.

120ml pineapple juice
