Head Sommelier Niels Sluiman let’s us in on a recipe to one of his favourite Jonah’s cocktails.
We could all use a little indulgence at the moment to lighten the mood at home with many days ahead of us to be spent inside. Although it may not be quite the same as reclining in our clifftop garden and taking in the ocean views, this cocktail recipe will bring a little bit of the Jonah’s flavour to your living room.
The Sugar & Spice cocktail is a favourite among guests at Jonah’s for its light and refreshing flavours, perfect for a sunny afternoon.
“I like to recommend a selection of snacks to enjoy with this cocktail for an afternoon aperitivo such as our Jonah’s seafood ‘fritto’, thinly sliced prosciutto, freshly shucked oysters or even grilled zucchini flowers,” says Niels.
Combine 45ml Hendricks Gin wity 15ml lychee liquor, 15ml lime juice, 4 cardamom pods, 7 mint leaves, and shake with ice. Pour into a tumbler glass and top it up with tonic water for that thirst quenching fizz!
