Cocktail hour

Liquid gold: The sundowner of the summer

This delicious cocktail is reminiscent of a sunset in Dunnet Bay, the coastal region where Rock Rose Gin is crafted by aptly named Dunnet Bay Distillers. It’s perfect for enjoying with friends or someone special on a warm evening at sunset.

50ml Rock Rose Gin
15ml triple sec
125ml orange juice
25ml lemon juice
20ml sugar syrup
2tsp grenadine

Add all ingredients except grenadine to a tall glass and fill with ice. Stir.
Add the grenadine down the side of the glass so it settles at the bottom to give the sunset effect.
Stir liberally before drinking.
