Ginuary 11th: Gin Genie.

Oh, no. Don’t say it’s true. 

It’s with a pretty heavy heart that I do this one.

Gin Genie

  • 30ml gin
  • 30ml sloe gin
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 30ml fresh lemon juice
  • 8 mint leaves

In a highball glass, lightly muddle the mint leaves. Add the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup and stir well. Add crushed ice and stir again. Top with more crushed ice and the sloe gin.


Of course I had something else planned for today but the news hit while I was still at work and hearts across the world broke. David Bowie was a unique piece of magic and we are all so lucky to have existed in the same lifetime as him. The stars look very different today. 

Cheers to you, Ziggy.
