The classic gin cocktail recipe is a beautiful combination of gin, grenadine, egg white, fresh lime and applejack. Tanqueray Gin dazzles in this cocktail recipe with its profile of botanicals. This triple-distilled gin has been a go-to choice for a variety of cocktail recipes, offering an exhilarating taste experience.
The other ingredients in the cocktail recipe such as grenadine, a syrup made from pomegranates offer a pop of colour and delicious sweet flavour to the drink. While the fresh lemon adds a tartiness balancing the other flavours, the egg white creates a frothy foam on top of the drink and makes it silky and smooth. The cocktail recipe also features applejack, a smooth and fruity American brandy made from apples.
We've introduced a variation to the classic recipe by replacing the grenadine with strawberry syrup, and doing away with the Applejack to keep the focus on the berry. It is strawberry season after all, so it's simply expected that we embrace the fruit.
The ingredients come together in a blend that is absolutely elegant and charming to the palate. If you are a gin cocktail lover, you cannot miss this pretty and delectable drink! If you love hosting parties, want to celebrate special moments with your better half or simply enjoy a tipple with your close pals, you have to try this. This gin cocktail recipe is very easy to make at home.
Using a cocktail jigger or a measuring cup, measure 45ml of Tanqueray Gin, 8ml of strawberry syrup, and 22.5ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice, into a cocktail shaker.
Gently separate the egg whites from the yolk and add it to the cocktail shaker.
Shake vigorously without ice to combine (dry shake).
Fill the shaker with ice and shake again until the surface of the shaker feels chilled.
Using a cocktail strainer, strain the mixture into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. This will remove any unwanted pieces of ice or impurities resulting in a smooth and flavourful drink.
Garnish with strawberries.
Serve and enjoy!
