Gin Cosmopolitan

Make the perfect cocktail for your guests this festive season, by switching vodka with Hensol Castle Welsh dry gin, to enjoy our twist on the classic cosmopolitan! 


You will need;

  • 45ml Hensol Castle Welsh dry gin
  • 25ml triple sec 
  • 30ml cranberry juice
  • 10ml lime juice
  • Ice
  • Orange peel for the garnish
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass


Shake all the ingredients and ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a martini glass (you don’t want any ice in your glass)

For the beautifully fragrant garnish, cut off a small ribbon of orange peel and carefully wave over a flame to release the zesty aromas. Rim the glass with the peel, twist the peel and hold for a few seconds to spiral, then drop into your cocktail.
