Sampling Böe's new Passion Gin
Böe Gin sent me a sample of their newly launched Passion Gin, a passionfruit-flavoured gin. As with any new gin (I promise I’ll stop saying ‘gin’ soon), I immediately thought ‘Negroni’.
So I’ve set out here a kind of Passionfruit Negroni, trying to balance the bright tropical flavours of Böe’s new release, which is pretty spectacular - sweet, tropical and strong. And passionfruit is still an underused flavour in my opinion, so this is an excellent way to introduce it into drinks as a base.
1oz Italicus Rosolio De Bergamotto
1oz Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth
1tsp Lemon Juice
3 dashes Dashfire Lemon Bitters
Method: Stir all ingredients with ice and strain over a large ice cube in a coupe glass. Express and garnish with lemon twist.
