Shortcross Gin is made by Northern Irish craft gin distillery, Rademon Estate. This small batch gin is made using their custom made still, which features a 450 litre copper pot still and two enrichment columns. Using intriguing botanicals like fresh apple, elderberry and wild clover, as well as juniper, coriander, orange peel, lemon peel and cassia, they produce a vibrant, floral style of gin that befits savouring it neat, as well as enjoying with tonic.

- 50ml Shortcross Gin
- 10ml Lillet Blanc
- 20ml Fresh lemon juice
- 5-8ml (a bar spoon) Sugar Syrup
- Cardamom pods (4)
- Fresh mint leaves
- Orange peel
- Chilli Bitters (to taste)
Muddle the Cardamom pods in a shaker to break them. Add the Shortcross, lemon, Lillet and sugar syrup. Shake hard with ice for around 90 seconds. Add the mint and gently toss for another 30 seconds or so (the mint should be bruised but not smashed to bits). Double strain into a martini or coupe glass. Garnish with a generous twist of orange and serve with Chilli Bitters (to be added carefully for some spice!).
