    The Gimlet by Heston

    • Christmas

    Serves: 1

    Ingredients

    FOR THE BUTTER-WASHED CIDER CORDIAL
    50g unsalted butter
    330ml Aspall Cyder
    25g apple cider vinegar
    30g fresh lemon juice
    70g golden caster sugar

    FOR THE COCKTAIL
    60g reserved butter-washed cider cordial
    40g Heston from Waitrose Citrus Sherbet Lazy Gin
     

    Method

    1. For the butter-washed cider cordial, gently melt the butter in a pan over low heat. Stir in the cyder, vinegar and lemon juice, and transfer the mixture to a bowl.

    2. Allow to cool, then cover and place in the fridge overnight.

    3. Remove and discard the fat that solidifies on the surface. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve and add the caster sugar, stirring well to dissolve.

    4. To make the cocktail, stir the reserved butter-washed cider cordial and gin in a shaker over ice for 2 minutes. Strain into a glass and serve.
