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
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.
