BECAUSE I LIKE GIN
Today I am gonna present you VIDAMO brand, an Online-Shop where you can find different tastes of beverages, perfect for a fine gift or for own collection or delight :). You can search for your favourite drinks either by land or by brand which is very practical in my oppinion. You can find here more than 100 sorts of different tastes from different countries all over the world. Every beverage has it’s own story and represent a symbol for something. The Shop includes also an Online Magazine, where you can find interesting tipps from Drinks combinations, curious compositions, wine production informations to tastes you should definitely consider together with fine Cocktails recipes.
Because gin is my favourite, I picked up for you an easy to do recipe of Pomelo and Basil Cocktail. Some of these kind cocktails call for a specific type of gin—the cucumbery, floral Hendrick’s, for example, or robustly juniper-flavored London Dry. Those gins will make delicious versions of these drinks. The slight sweetness of both the pomelo and basil make a very good combination together and they’re both able to hold their own and bring depth to a cocktail.
For the Basil Syrup you need:
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 cup water
• 6 large fresh basil leaves, torn in half
For the Cocktail you need:
• 1 ounce freshly squeezed pomelo juice
• 3/4 ounce basil simple syrup
• 1 1/2 ounce gin
