We love a cocktail here at Birch Gin... made with our gin of course, but there's nothing quite like mixing it up a bit and seeing what flavours you can bring out. So, we've gathered together a few of our favourites for you to try - ENJOY!
The Sumatra Martini
This Sumatra Martini is something special, giving you a sublime combination of smoke, leather and bitter chocolate. To experience it for yourself, you need:
- 50 ml Birch Sumatra coffee and cardamom Gin
- 15 ml Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
- A dash of Fee Bros Old Fashioned Bitters
… you can get the other ingredients from Master of Malt, who also stock all our lovely gins! We've linked them for you to make life easier.
Add the liquid ingredients to your favourite cocktail shaker
Shake with ice and then pour into a cocktail glass, any shape you like
Add a single Sumatran coffee bean, it’s that perfect finishing touch and makes all the difference, but, if you don’t have one to hand, skip this step!
Sit back in front of the fire and enjoy this perfect cocktail
Although Sumatra is a fantastic base for an awesome Martini, it makes the perfect sipping gin and can also be enjoyed with ginger ale for a delightful long drink.
