Simon Ford of Plymouth Gin tells us about the fine flavors of gin and what goes into their centuries old recipe. Simon gets us started with a few recipes we can try at home.
Sloe Motion Giz Fizz
20 ml Plymouth Sloe Gin
75 ml champagne
garnish: 3 blueberries
Pour in the Sloe Gin top with champagne.
Plymouth Dry Martini
1 part Plymouth Gin
Splash of dry vermouth
Pour vermouth into a mixing glass over ice cubes and swirl or stir, making sure the ice is coated with the vermouth. Strain off excess vermouth, leaving only as much vermouth is desired for the level of dryness (the less vermouth in the drink, the drier it is).
Add Plymouth Gin to the mixing glass and stir until extremely chilled.
Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon twist or unwashed olive.
