A delightfully unique cocktails using our Sussex Blue Gin.

-Start by chilling your favourite glass using fresh ice. (We recommend a tall glass)

-Place a couple of ice cubes carefully into mix at the bottom ensuring that a whole ice cube is out of the mix.

-Slowly pour a measure of Sussex Blue Gin over the ice cube to get the blue to sit perfectly on top of the other mix.

Negroni

Sussex Mojito

A drink best served with rum yet, supercharged with Pure Sussex Gin. 

-Fill your desired glass with ice. (We recommend a tall glass)

-Pour this ice into a shaker along with 8-10 mint leaves.

-Using a muddler (or similar hard object that is able to crush ice) reduce the contents down causing the essential mint oils to flavour the cocktail.

-Add a shot of Pure Sussex Gin and a squirt of lime juice.

-You can shake at this stage and add a sparkling mixer e.g. Appletiser however, we prefer to fill the shaker to roughly an inch from the top with apple juice and shake for roughly 30 seconds.

-Pour into your glass and enjoy with a few extra mint leaves and a slice of lime.
