Countdown to 2018: Gin Dandy

This Gin Dandy cocktail recipe comes from Martha Stewart.

gin dandyTip: When serving cocktails over ice, use larger ice cubes – they melt more slowly, preventing over-dilution of your drink. A small amount of melted ice could contribute to the overall flavour of your drink, but too much… Well, you know what they say ?


½ cup sugar

½ cup water

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 ½ cups pomegranate-flavoured liqueur

1 ½ cups gin

2 lemons, cut in wedges

  1. In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  2. Let the mixture cool, then pour over ice in a large pitcher.
  3. Stir in lemon juice, liqueur and gin.
  4. Ladle into glasses garnished with lemon wedges.

Serves six.
