"The meaty spice of Tanqueray's London Dry Gin juniper coupled with the bitter cacao and coffee notes of Belsazar Red are a match made in heaven for robust, meaty steaks. The aromatic rosemary soda enhances the charred Maillard crust of a well-cooked piece of meat" says Jack Sotti, Tanqueray Brand Ambassador.

Method

1. Pour the gin and cordial in a highball glass with cubed ice.

2. Top with rosemary soda, and garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of rosemary.

  • Slow-cooked smoky beef

“Vegetables in their season need light fresh and herbaceous pairings to compliment them. Freshly torn basil with tomato and root veg is a perfect match, and the delicate bittersweet acidity of white grapefruit balances the soft sweetness of roasted veggies” saysSotti.

  • 40 ml Tanqueray London Dry Gin
  • 20 ml fresh pressed grapefruit juice
  • 10 ml sugar syrup

1. Muddle (mash) the grapefruit juice, sugar syrup and basil in the base of a highball glass. 

2. Add in the Tanqueray London Dry Gin then fill with cubed ice.

3. Top with soda, and garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a sprig of basil for the perfect touch.
