Cocktail Recipe: Heard It Through the Grapevine

By | Cocktails

Heard It Through the Grapevine

An original cocktail made for summer, The Grapevine combines a bunch of our favourite warm-weather drinks at Tawse. A little bit o’ this, a little bit o’ that….and you’ve got something that looks like it’s been plucked straight off the vine! —

Gamay Ice Sphere – While you can use any size ice-tray, we love the look of the sphere!
1 Part Water: 2 Parts Tawse Gamay Noir
Freeze for longer than normal ice (the wine will take a bit to freeze!)
We used this Ice Sphere Tray from Peak…

1oz Simple Syrup
1oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1oz Tawse Gin
Gently bruise 2 fresh basil leaves for a hint of fresh flavour
If you LOVE basil, you can also muddle one in the glass before adding ingredients.
Add a few Blackberries for a boozy treat after you’ve finished your drink.
Finish the cocktail off with some S.Pellegrino for some refreshing bubbles! We love the Cherry/Pomegranate flavour.
