The Fruity Cocktail That Might Count Towards Your Five-a-day

In every Gin of the Month box, we send out the key ingredients to make a specially crafted tipple aka our Cocktail of the Month – simply add a couple of basic store-cupboard items, shake and serve!

Like the mythical city of gold from which it takes its name, January’s Cocktail of the Month is a treasure of the Amazon rainforest. Conquistadors and adventurers spent centuries searching for the lost city of El Dorado – mapping much of the Amazon in the process – but you need only venture to the kitchen to make this cracking cocktail! A combination of gin, tropical fruit juices and passion fruit syrup, it’s every bit as precious as its namesake.
