Week Two: Bloomsbury Cosmo

January 11, 2009

I’ve been kicking around some ideas ahead of Thursday’s regional for the Diageo World Class competition. The heat could involve presenting up to three different drinks, including one classic or twisted classic gin cocktail. I’m not sure if this one is right for the comp, but y’know, still tasty.

Bloomsbury Cosmopolitan
40ml Tanqueray Gin
10ml Elderflower cordial
30ml Cranberry juice
15ml Lime juice
1 dash Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and fine-strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a flamed orange zest.

    whoop! I already have elderflower cordial! (back in the day my granny used to make it, you know!)

    (damn you and all your fancy bitters. peach one week, orange the next…)

    also, what is this flamed orange zest of which you speak? a quick once through the ol’ gas hob do it? is it just to liberate the oils?
