Bartender top tips
I believe that sometimes we forget or don’t even imagine what potential cocktail ingredients already lurk in our kitchens, fridges or larder! Take this cocktail as an example, whoever thought that marmalade would taste so delicious in a drink? Use this as a springboard of ginspiration and use other ingredients such as home-made jam, local honey, milk, sea salt & pepper, Worcestershire sauce…. I’ve even seen a cocktail with Marmite in it! Experiment with flavours you know you like and you might surprise yourself.
