Drink of The Week Recipe – From the Loch!

Sometimes the drink of the week is a sudden spontaneous creation, and that is exactly what we have here. This particular cocktail, which does not yet have a name, was created last Tuesday night. I was in the mood for a G&T, but the absence of tonic water combined with a general laziness to pop to the shop, cancelled out that possibility. The lack of Vermute, rained on my Negroni parede.

Always a fan of working with the ingredientes to hand and always up for creating. I came up with this concoction. 

The lemon, tangerine and Aperol provide a citric base, which is balanced by the sweetness of the  elderflower, the gin unites all the flavours…or something like that. haha However, this gin isn’t just any gin, it’s a limited edition House of Elrick gin. A Scottish gin so special that it even contains water from the actual Loch Ness!

One of the most satisfying things about creating such a niche cocktail (other than drinking it, clearly) is the naming process, preferably commencing after the second drink. 😉

The current contenders are:

  • Citric Loch
  • Loch Orange
  • Citric Monster
  • A legend of flavours
  • Deep Citrus
  • Loch L’Orange
  • Nessy lives
  • Deep gin

I suppose there has to be a recipe now after all that hype…here goes:
