Welcome to the new Brockmans’ Cocktail Menu for Autumn 2018
Think of dark, romantic autumn evenings and then think, naturally, of the dark, glamorous gin, in its famous black bottle, Brockmans.
Brockmans brings us Twilight and a Dark Night; Smoke on the Water; and, for good measure, an Autumn ‘Tonic’.
Brockmans Twilight Sharp, deep and complex
40ml Brockmans Gin
10ml Maraschino Liqueur
10ml Yellow Chartreuse
25ml Lemon juice – freshly squeezed
15ml Gomme Syrup
Garnish: A lemon twist and black pepper for the rim
Run lemon around the rim of a stemmed coupe glass and upturn over ground pepper.
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with Ice and a couple of twists of ground pepper then hard shake. Double strain the liquid into the glass and garnish with a twist of lemon.
Brockmans Dark Night Negroni
A luxurious and sophisticated autumn Negroni
25ml Brockmans Gin
25ml Blueberry liqueur
20ml Rosso Vermouth
2 dashes of orange bitters.
A wedge of orange* with the edge dipped in cinnamon and two blueberries/or thick orange peel with one edge dipped in cinnamon and skewered with blueberries
