Cocktail of the Month: Rosemary & mint mojito

Rosemary and mint gin mojito

With World Gin Day on Saturday 11 June, there was only one spirit we could choose for our very first Cocktail of the Month: gin. Head Bartender Alex Warren puts his own slant on the mojito – traditionally made with rum, this cocktail is perfect for summer.

You’ll need a 12oz highball glass, a bar spoon and a cocktail muddler.

Ingredients

2 wedges each of lime, orange and lemon
A handful of fresh mint
2 sprigs of rosemary
50ml Gin Mare (you can use your favourite gin)
Crushed ice
Fever Tree tonic water

Method

– In a 12oz highball glass, muddle the lime, orange and lemon wedges to release the juices.
– Add a handful of fresh mint and add the leaves from one of the rosemary sprigs.
– Add 50ml of Gin Mare – this gin is infused with herbs, so works perfectly with the fresh herbs in the drink.
– Add a scoop of crushed ice and mix.
– Top with more crushed ice and Fever Tree tonic water.
– Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
