Star of Bombay cocktails for the New Year’s Eve!

Star-of-Bombay-cocktails -for-the-New-Years-Eve-Cover

As the New Year’s Eve is coming really fast, it’s another occasion to celebrate during the non-stop end of the years partys. We often wonder what we will serve our guests as a welcome cocktail, unless you are experts behind the bar, we are often a little lost and often repeat the same cocktails. That’s why, with the Star of Bombay gin, I suggest you some recipes of cocktails, so that your evening of the 31 (it can also be before, question to test there) will be total success!

A bolder version of the original gin

This gin is bolder expression of their signature style gin, The Bombay Sapphire. With two additional botanicals, carefully selected then slowly distilled for a more intense flavour. Adding a rich new dimension to their original recipe. Ambrette seeds, solely sourced from Ecuador. And gently dried bergamot orange peel hand-picked in Calabria. To maintain the integrity of the 12 botanicals, they slow down the vapour infusion process and distil them for longer. Ensuring rich aromas and deeper flavours. This makes an exceptionally smooth gin designed to be enjoyed on its own in a Martini, or in a variety of contemporary cocktails. Perfect for some amazing cocktails to celebrate the New Years Eve!

The cocktail recipes with an amazing gin:

Star of Bombay & Tonic

Let’s start with the classic, their version of the gin and tonic. To appreciate all its aromas, I suggest you serve it in a whiskey glass, with large ice cubes and garnished with a serrated orange peel.
