This cocktail combines the flavours of Boë Violet and classic mint candy-cane, all spruced up by the festive flavours of a Christmas tree cutting for a Christmas tipple.

Ingredients

  • 60ml Boe_gin Violet gin
  • 40ml Cranberry juice
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 20ml home-made syrup
  • 300g Ice cubes
  • 100g icing sugar (for décor)
  • Syrup
  • 6x peppermint candy canes
  • 1x 10cm fir tree cutting
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 250ml boiling water

Method

To make the Boë gin cocktail syrup, add all ingredients (apart from the fir cutting) to a pot and heat on hob until candy-canes are dissolved.

Once dissolved, add fir cutting and allow to cool for approx. an hour.

Using tape, tape your desired pattern onto the glass, leaving gaps where you want your icing sugar ‘snow’ pattern to go.

Place glass in freezer and leave for 10 minutes.

Using a sieve, shake the icing sugar over the chilled glass.

Carefully remove the tape to reveal the snow pattern.

Add measured ingredients to a shaker and shake for 30 seconds before pouring.

Enjoy!

Boë Gin have collaborated with Scottish Mixology to create the new Christmas serve.
