Winter Serves - Smoke and Mirrors Cocktail
A Ramsbury twist on the theatrical Smoke and Mirrors cocktail, this serve embodies all of the flavours of winter and is perfect for those looking to try something a little different!
Best-known for the nature of its theatrical presentation, the Smoke and Mirrors cocktail lends itself perfectly as a unique winter serve. Traditionally made with Whisky, we have added our own take on this, by replacing it with our smooth Single Estate gin.

The sweet cinnamon smoke, bitter lemon and refreshing apple juice, are all brought together by the crisp quince undertones and the savoury spice of the juniper in our gin. Coupled together, these flavours and aromas are reminiscent of the festive party season! 

50 ml Ramsbury Gin
60 ml fresh clear red apple juice
20 ml fresh lemon juice
20 ml smoked apple and cinnamon Cordial

Stir all ingredients and strain over a cube of ice into the glass vessel. Fill up with cinnamon smoke and close the lid.

Smoked apple and cinnamon cordial
12 red apples
1 piece of cinnamon
Equal amount of white granulated sugar as apple juice

Peel and cut the apples into wedges and add them into a glass jar with lid. Load your smoke gun with the wooden chips and smoke the apple wedges for 7 minutes.
Juice the apples through a juice extractor, add sugar and the cinnamon and fill a plastic bag with the mix and vacuum seal.
Leave it in a water bath at 64 degrees for 4 hours until all the sugar is dissolved, strain and bottle.
