Made at J Sheekey | Serves 1
As an essential part of Sheekey’s cocktail list this Christmas, Bar Manager Leon Costa has created PimmsAlingAling using the lesser known, but equally delicious Pimm’s Winter Cup. The perfect festive tipple, we recommend you have it warm to ward off winter chills.
25ml Pimm’s Winter Cup
25ml Somerset Cider brandy 5yo
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
100ml cloudy apple juice (hot or cold)
1 sliced strawberry (for the cold cocktail only)
2 cinnamon sticks
1 apple slice
1 orange slice
A sprig of mint
To make the cocktail
Put all ingredients in a highball glass filled with ice and sliced strawberry. Stir well using a bar (long) spoon and garnish with cinnamon sticks, apple and orange slice and a sprig of mint.
Put the Pimm’s, Somerset Cider Brandy and apple juice into a pan and gently heat for a minute until just simmering (not boiling). Add the Angostura Bitters, cinnamon sticks, apple and orange slice and heat for a further minute. Pour into a toddy glass (or heat-proof glass), garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.
