Alex from Lovebucket makes a new orleans Roffignac inspired cocktail for Jonny & Big Hungry using Citadelle Réserve 2013 Cognac Barrel aged Gin
To a cocktail shaker add:
60ml Citadelle Réserve 2013 Gin
10ml Dry Curaçao
25ml Raspberry Shrub
Juice of half a lemon
2 drops of orange blossom water
Shake and layer with soda water in a tall, ice filled glass. Top with crushed ice and a couple of drops of Creole Bitters.
Raspberry Shrub Recipe
Combine equal parts (1 cup is good) fresh raspberries and sugar and heat to make a syrup. Then add the same volume of vinegar and strain.
Combine fruit and sugar in a clean bowl mashing it up as you stir. Cover with plastic, and store in the refrigerator for a couple of days. Strain out the fruit and pour into a clean jar with equal parts vinegar. Place the jar with a tight fitting lid in the refrigerator where it should last for a few months.
