Looking for a New Year’s Eve tipple? Try this delicious gin cocktail

If you’re looking for something fruity to ring in 2024, 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 The Crown on Netflix into the next and deciding you’re going to learn how to make pasta from scratch.

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.
