5 cocktails to make with The Lemon One
Opening a bottle of our craft curiosity gin infused with lemon is a great way to elevate any cocktail, these are our top 5 cocktails to make with our lemon gin!
1. The Curiosity Lemon gimlet
A gimlet is a classic gin cocktail. Favoured by novelists and 1920’s hedonists, a gimlet is a shaken cocktail made of just lime juice and gin.
Whilst many mixologists have experimented with the cocktail and its composition, we prefer to keep things simple while elevating it with our lemon gin.
Chill a martini or coupe in the fridge whilst preparing your cocktail
Construct your cocktail in a shaker: add 50ml of lime cordial (or juice) over lots of ice
Add 50ml of Harley House The Lemon One to the shaker
Shake thoroughly for 30-45 seconds
Take your glass out of the fridge and strain your cocktail into the glass
Serve with a lemon twist and enjoy!
2. The Lemon Tom Collins
The great thing about a Tom Collins is that it’s so simple, so it really allows the gin to shine. The first Tom Collins recipe was found in 1876 and has gone on to be a great alternative to the G&T.
Construct this in a glass. Fill a highball (or Collins glass) with ice. Then add 25ml of simple syrup.
Add 50ml of Harley House The Lemon One
Top the glass with soda water and stir for 30-45s.
Add a slice of lemon for garnish and enjoy!
This deep red cocktail has become a quick favourite over recent years. Created in Italy, the standard cocktail has a rich citrus flavour which makes it great to try a lemon twist!
Use a glass filled with ice to mix the cocktail. Add 25ml Harley House The Lemon One gin, 25ml Campari and 25ml Rosso or Extra Dry Vermouth.
Stir until the drink is cold.
Strain into a glass with fresh ice and a lemon twist for garnish
4. French 75
The French 75 goes all the way back to WW1, which mixes gin and champagne. To this day the cocktail remains an elegant option and a great base to elevate even further.
Add 50ml Harley House The Lemon One and 25ml simple syrup to a shaker filled with ice.
Shake until very cold.
Strain into a champagne flute. Add a little champagne, then wait for the bubbles to set. Fill glass with champagne, stir, and garnish with a lemon twist
