Gin and Rose Water Cocktail

Recipe & Food Styling Ajda MehmetProp Styling by Ciara O'HalloranPhotography by Miki Barlok





2 measures tonic
1 measure gin
1 measure pomegranate juice
1-2 tbsp syrup

For the syrup:

100g caster sugar
75ml water
1tbsp rose water
2-3 sprigs of thyme


Bring the sugar and water to the boil, without stirring if at all possible. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the rose water and sprigs of thyme and let it bubble away for a few minutes until syrupy. Remove the sprigs of thyme and set it aside to cool.

The rose water pairs sweetly with the gin, the thyme providing warmth and the pomegranate that bit of sour for a perfectly balanced and refreshing drink. Serve over ice garnished with a rose petal.
