Portobello Present

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Total time: 10 minutes 10 minutes

Serves: 6-8


Gooseberry syrup (made with Waitrose Gooseberry Preserve)
250ml Portobello Road Gin
75ml Harvey’s Amontillado sherry
250ml Waitrose Cloudy Pressed Cox Apple Juice
½ bottle (40cl) Prosecco
Lemon slices, to serve


For the syrup:
1. Place 2-3 heaped tablespoons of preserve into a saucepan with equal parts cold water.
2. Bring to boil and then turn down to simmer for around 3 minutes.
3. Strain if required (although I like to leave in the gooseberries).
4. Leave to cool.

To make the cocktail:
1. Half fill a large punch bowl with ice. Add all the ingredients, including 2 teaspoons of the gooseberry syrup then give it a good stir.
2. Add some lemon slices and serve in tumbler glasses.
