Spice up your at-home NYE with this delicious gin cocktail

NYE is a time to go a little wild, even if we're being told (yet again) to stay indoors and avoid parties. So put the G&T down for one night and spice things up with this grapefruit tipple.

Spice up your at-home NYE with this delicious gin cocktail

While it looks like NPHET are putting the kybosh on any New Year’s Eve celebrations, it doesn’t mean that ringing in 2022 has to be a downer. Why not make the most of being at home and that well-stocked cocktail cupboard and whip up something fun to ring in the New Year with?

We’ve dug up one of our go-to concoctions that we return to again and again for you to try. It’s a great low-effort project, falling somewhere in the middle of the scale between launching straight from one season of Emily in Paris on Netflix into the next and deciding you’re going to learn how to make pasta from scratch. Why not share this recipe with a few friends, schedule a group call and let the fun begin.

Ingredients

  • 250ml grapefruit juice
  • 1 tbsp sumac
  • pomegranate molasses
  • 50ml of Gunpowder gin
  • 150ml Poacher’s tonic
  • pomegranate seeds, for garnishing
  • green peppercorns, for garnishing
  • a sprig of rosemary, for garnishing


Method

1 Place a deep pan on a medium heat.

2 Pour in grapefruit juice, sumac, and pomegranate molasses and until it is nicely simmering.

3 Remove from the heat and allow to cool before bottling. Sumac syrup can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days.

4 In a large wine glass, pour in Gunpowder gin and 25ml of the sumac syrup and stir.

5 Add a good handful of ice to glass and pour over 150ml of Poacher’s tonic and stir.

6 Add pomegranate seeds, peppercorns and rosemary and serve.
