Cocktail of the week: Cafe Biltmore’s gin blanc – recipe

The fresh, fruity notes of the sauvignon blanc complement the botanicals in the gin beautifully in this last of the summer wine cocktail.

Gin blanc
Serves 1

20ml London dry gin – we use No. 3
20ml sauvignon blanc
50ml grapefruit juice, ideally freshly squeezed
20ml lime juice
15ml basic sugar syrup, infused with a little thyme, ideally
1 sprig fresh thyme, to garnish

Put all the liquids in a shaker with a handful of ice, shake, then double strain into a wine glass filled with ice. Garnish with the thyme and serve.
