For the end of Dry July, we caught up with Craig Michael The Distillery Manager @thewhiskery on the Bellarine Peninsula who wowed us with his new little winter warmer - a spicy fireside sipper called “Cozy Rosey” destined to get everybody out of their dry July winter doldrums.
This recipe showcases their Barrel Aged Gin “Rosey & The Rabbits”.

Cozy Rosey Winter Cocktail

·         45ml Rosey & The Rabbits Barrel Aged Gin by Bellarine Distillery
·         30ml Canton Ginger Liqueur (Available at Dan Murphy’s)
·         30ml Cloudy Apple Juice (Nudie works well)

1.       Don’t stress about the fancy syrup – it’s easy. Just mix ½ cup of dark brown sugar and ½ cup of hot water and mix with ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder. This will give you enough for at least 10 cocktails!
2.       Put the fresh ginger slices, Rosey & The Rabbits gin, Canton Ginger liqueur and lime juice in a shaker and muddle (with force) the ginger slices into the spirit.
3.       Add the apple juice, syrup and ice.
4.       Shake vigorously, strain and serve in a fancy cocktail glass with a perfectly placed piece of lime zest.
5.       Enjoy by the fire with your ugg boots on.
