Heres #4 of 10 cocktails I will be sharing with you, all made with Double Dutch tonics from their Explorer pack – a mixed case of tonics so you never have to drink dull!
This is a Pink Lady the I am Emily way! Full of flavour with a raspberry gin liqueur, grenadine and topped with tonic water and a wedge of lemon.
Grenadine is a great addition to a cocktail. It’s flavour is both tart and sweet and the lovely deep red brings a great colour to your drink.
I used a raspberry gin liqueur in this cocktail. I think that if the majority of your cocktail is alcohol and only topped up with a bit of mixer then go sweet. Albeit I don’t really have a sweet tooth, the combination of the liqueur and the grenadine syrup work really well together mixed with straight tonic as the tartness of grenadine balances it nicely.
I love Lidl’s, award-winning, Hortus gin range. It’s cost-effective and does the trick, especially in cocktails. There’s always at least one of these lovelies in the cupboard!
So, without further ado, let’s get on with making this classy cocktail…
