Aromatic Citrus Cocktails Floral Gin

Love Potion

In honor of this weekends release of the Harry Potter prequel, fantastic beasts and where to find them, I had to make a cocktail in celebration of this occasion for muggles and magic folk alike!

I decided to create a love potion, which, according to magic law smells different to everyone, I always remember Hermione Grainger’s smells of freshly mown grass, fresh parchment and peppermint. Sadly as a mere muggle my potion blending skills aren’t quite up to this level but I have created a floral fresh and simply divine love potion inspired concoction.

I have used Hendricks Gin, fresh cucumber topped with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and garnished with petals. Its easy to make and is fresh, fragrant and floral.

Method

In a shaker muddle about 5cm of cucumber, once mushed add a dash of sugar syrup and 50ml of Hendricks gin.

Top with ice and shake vigorously for around 15 seconds. Double strain into a pre-chilled glass.

Top with Rose Lemonade, Garnish with a rose petal and a thin slice of cucumber.

Note: Although I have used a coupe type glass, this recipe can be easily adapted to a long drink, simply use a highball glass and top with Rose Lemonade.
