Gin, Watercress And Pink Grapefruit Cocktail:

Serves One:

Prep time: 5 minutes plus one hour freezing time

Ingredients:

50ml gin

20g watercress, roughly chopped

50ml pink grapefruit juice

250ml tonic water To serve (optional)

Watercress sprigs

Edible petals

Pomegranate seeds

Pink grapefruit slices 

Method:

1.) To make decorative ice cubes for your cocktails, place a few watercress sprigs, petals or pomegranate seeds into the sections of an ice cube tray.  Fill with water and leave to freeze solid for at least one hour.

2.) Muddle together the gin and watercress by putting them both into a jug and mashing well with a fork.  Strain the gin through a fine meshed sieve to remove the chopped watercress while still leaving the flavour.  Add the grapefruit juice to the gin and mix.

3.) Take two gin and tonic glasses or large tumblers and fill with ice cubes.  Pour over the gin and grapefruit, then top up to the desired level with tonic water.  Garnish with a slice of pink grapefruit and serve immediately.

    Looks great. We have a branch of The Botanist just opened in our town and of course we have had to check it out. They have all sorts of amazing cocktails with all sorts of leaves and green bits in them! I love the idea of making similar ones at home.
