Many people have been looking forward to autumn. However, after the sunny week we’ve just had. I’m going to cling on to summer as much as I can. Martin Miller’s Gin is the perfect gin for sunny days on the balcony. Today I’m sharing a cocktail with their wonderful gin.
I’m a huge fan of Martin Miller’s Gin, those of you who follow my blog or instagram should know this already. So when they offered to send me a bottle, I was not going to decline. This was much to Dr W’s despair, as the gin shelf is now no longer confined to the original gin shelf…
To make it up to Dr W I offered to try out my summer cocktail experiment on him. He did not complain. I turned to a garnish I really enjoyed with Martin Miller’s Gin, pear. I teamed this with cucumber, elderflower and added lots of ice. It’s simple, but refreshing and easy to make. As usual my top tip if you don’t have a cocktail shaker is just to use something with a tight fitting lid. Clean jam jars or lock top Tupperware both are suitable cocktail shaker alternatives.
Summer Pear Cocktail
- 50ml Martin Miller’s Gin
- 25ml Pear Liqueur
- 25ml St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
- 10ml Cucumber syrup
- Elderflower Tonic Water
- Pear for garnish
- Fill a highball glass and cocktail shaker with plenty of cubed ice.
- Pour the gin, pear liqueur, cucumber syrup and elderflower liqueur into the cocktail shaker. Pop the lid on and shake until the cocktail shaker gets very cold to touch.
- Pour the mix over the ice, top with the elderflower tonic and garnish with pear slices. Enjoy!
