For those hoping for a white winter, there’s unfortunately no guarantee. Thanks to Phil Docherty at Chotto Matte – a London bar-restaurant that specialises in hybrid Japanese-Peruvian Nikkei cuisine, as well as craft cocktails – there’s at least the certainty of a well-mixed wintertime pour.
- 40ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin
10ml syrup sugar
20ml fresh lemon juice
- Build in a rocks glass with cube ice and stir.
- Top with crushed ice, a crème de mûre float.
- Add a blackberry garnish.
