Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant Hapus! (That's Happy Saint David's Day to those of you not fluent in Welsh!) To help celebrate Wales' national day, we've gathered together these three delicious Welsh (or Cyrmaeg) gin cocktails. And if you make them with some lovely Welsh craft gin, all the better - iechyd da!
A deliciously fruity celebration of the Welsh emblem and pride of the Welsh flag.
30ml Grand Marnier
25ml blood orange juice
25ml lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled glass.
25ml Orange Juice
25ml Egg White
Muddle a jigger full of raisins with the Gin. Add it, along with the orange juice, Galliano, Cointreau and egg white to your shaker. Dry shake, until the egg white is fully aerated. Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour into a brown sugar rimmed Champagne coupe and serve alongside a couple of Welshcakes. Garnish with a square of orange peel and a raisin on a cocktail stick.
2 Parts Seaweed Gin
3 Parts Dry Vermouth
