The West Winds Gin ~ The Cutlass Cocktail



When doing the taste-testing for The West Winds Gin recently, I made sure I checked out their recommendations for cocktails. No one knows the gin like the makers and they usually come up with some adventurous ideas.

This one was a favourite. The use of marmalade is a nice touch.

The Cutlass Cocktail


60ml The West Winds Gin The Cutlass
25ml lime juice
1 heaped barspoon Roses Marmalade
3 basil leaves
Shake and strain over ice into rocks glass, basil leaf garnish.

The basil cuts through the zest of the lime in a pleasantly unexpected way. I liked this short version, but think that a splash of soda might appeal on a hot day.
