Refreshing Mint Junip cocktail recipe
And yes, before you ask, I do mean Junip, not Julep
Looking for a new gin cocktail to try during lockdown? Give this a go.
I got busy in my lab (tiny kitchen), and after several recipes, tweaks, start-overs and more, I was really happy with this. I present to you, the Mint Junip.
It's made with gorgeous Wild Island gin, which is distilled on the Isle of Colonsay, one of Scotland’s Southern Hebridean Islands.
The copper still is infused with six native hand-foraged botanicals growing wild on the island: lemon balm, wild water mint, meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, heather flowers, and bog myrtle.
And ten further botanicals are used as the base. While there’s quite a lot going on with it, in terms of a floral, citrus character, it can also stand up to complementary flavours, which is why I think it works in my cocktail.
