Our recommended cocktail recipe this month is the delicious Mayflower Martini – an exquisite blend of floral and fruit flavours to tempt your taste buds.Mayflower Martini Cocktail The key ingredient for this cocktail recipe is gin – though not just any gin. We particularly recommend Hendricks Gin which is made with a selection of the unusual ingredients such as infusions of oil pressed from Bulgarian rose petals and the essence of cucumber – as well as the traditional juniper.
Such fragrant flavours produce a delicately balanced cocktail recipe beginning with the base of Hendricks Gin, to which we add the fruity taste and aroma of De Kuyper Apricot Brandy, pressed apple juice, elderflower cordial and freshly squeezed lemon juice. All the ingredients are shaken together with ice, strained and served into a martini glass. For a distinctive garnish add an edible flower petal to make your finished cocktail truly spectacular. Enjoy!.
