A Cocktail Fit for a Masterchef!

A Cocktail Fit for a Masterchef!

Here’s a very special cocktail created by Masterchef winner, Irini Tzortzoglou. Irini lives in the culinary Cumbrian village of Cartmel, where you’ll find Michelin stars, Sticky Toffee Pudding, award-winning cheeses and brewery, the medieval Cartmel Priory and more. Since winning Masterchef in 2019, Irini has been busy with so many projects and also found time to become an Olive Oil Sommelier and publish her beautiful cookbook, Under The Olive Tree: Recipes from my Greek Kitchen.

Irini developed this cocktail for a culinary flight in a luxury hotel in Corfu. Kumquats are a natural partner for citrus so our Fancy Frolic Gin (with its three types of lime) is a perfect partner.

 

Durrells Corfiot Sling

5ml Green Olive Brine
20ml Fairtrade Kumquat Liqueur
10ml Cointreau
60ml Shed 1 Fancy Frolic Gin
10ml simple syrup (1:1 sugar/water)

Serve with:
2 drops of a high phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 whole or half a kumquat on a stick (substitute with half a slice of orange)

Put a glass in the freezer for 10 minutes.

In a shaker, mix everything with 3 cubes of ice, shake, strain into the cold glass and add two drops of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Relax and enjoy with a good book!
