Twisted Pimm’s cocktail Recipe

Written on Saturday, July 23, 2016 | 8:51:00 AM



MAKES : 1 LARGE OR 2 SMALL DRINKS

Ingredients : 
1)  CINNAMON STICK 1

2)  GREEN CARDAMOM PODS 2

3)  CLOVES 5

4)  CHOPPED FRESH ROOT GINGER 2 tablespoons

5)  FRESH MINT 1 long sprig, leaves torn and stem crushed, plus 1–2 sprigs to decorate

7)  PIMM’S NO.1 50ml (2fl oz)

8)  SOFT BROWN SUGAR 1½ teaspoons

9)  LEMON 1

10)  ORANGE 1

11)  CRUSHED ICE

12)  LEMONADE 500ml (18fl oz)

13) ROSE SYRUP 1 tablespoon (rosehip syrup may be used instead, but the flavour will be different)

Preparation Method :
- Put the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and cloves in a pan over a low heat and toast for 20 seconds. Add the ginger and crushed mint stem and stir for about 2 minutes.

- Turn off the heat, add the Pimm’s and the sugar to the pan and give it a light stir until the sugar has dissolved.

- Cut 4–5 semicircular slices of the lemon and orange and place in a 225–300ml (8–10fl oz) glass along with the torn mint leaves, or divide between 2 small glasses. Use a swizzle stick or the handle of a wooden spoon to press down lightly on the fruit and leaves to release some of their juices.

- Add a handful of crushed ice to the glass or a smaller amount to the small glasses and lightly stir it around, then pour in the spiced Pimm’s mixture. Add enough crushed ice to fill the glass or glasses about three-quarters full. Top up with the lemonade, leaving a little room for the garnish. Stir lightly, making sure to incorporate all the fruit at the bottom.

- Drizzle the rose syrup over the ice. Decorate with the mint sprig or sprigs, and grate a little lemon and orange zest over the top.
