Bombay Sapphire Sloe Gin Cocktails a Festive Treat

Sloe Gin, with its ruby red colour, is particularly festive and here are some great ideas from Bombay Sapphire for delicious sloe gin drinks. If you haven’t already made your sloe gin with Bombay Sapphire we strongly recommend Plymouth Sloe gin.

Shake 35ml Bombay Sapphire Sloe Gin, 20ml Amontillado Sherry, 20ml freshly squeezed lemon juice and 10ml Cherry Herring (cherry liqueur) in a cocktail shaker with cubed ice, then pour into a highball glass. Top with crushed ice and garnish with seasonal fruit, a mint sprig, lemon zest and a slice of orange. A perfectly balanced tipple incorporating sweet and dry notes, with a rich nutty sourness
and an elegant sweetness.

Heering on

Tony Abou-Ganim—master mixologist and author of The Modern Mixologist—favors the Petrossian Lounge at Bellagio for a cocktail (and the “perfect” Negroni at Nora’s Cuisine on Flamingo), but knows how to mix a mean drink himself. We’ve chosen five recipes (along with his musings on each) from his book The Modern Mixologist that will suit every taste and add cred to any cocktail arsenal.

Pure Joy

I really enjoy creating drinks to honor friends, family, and special occasions. Pure Joy was developed as a special gift to celebrate my niece, Kaitlin Joy, in honor of her graduation. Originally made with Absolut Citron vodka, we switched the recipe significantly to feature Bombay Sapphire after she tried her first perfect Dry Martini.

1 1/2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin
1/2 oz Bonny Doon Framboise
2 oz fresh lemon sour
1 teaspoon egg white
4-5 red raspberries
Chilled seltzer water

In a mixing glass, muddle red raspberries and framboise. Add Bombay Sapphire, egg white, and fresh lemon sour; shake with ice until well blended. Double strain into a Fizz glass and spritz with chilled seltzer water.

Just for Mary

(ri)1 straight rye whiskey (pronounced “rye one”) is made for mixing. Light among its rye brethren, pleasing, with both fruit and spice flavors at its center, it is tantalizing, friendly, and “easy on the tongue.” I combined (ri)1 with Lillet Blond and presented it to Mary. She smiled but I could tell something was missing. Back to the liquor cabinet for a measure of Cherry Heering and some orange bitters, then finished with burnt orange twist essence and a brandied cherry. This time a big smile. It may have been “just for Mary,” but thankfully there was enough for two. I think you’ll
agree that this is a perfect cocktailhour elixir.

2 oz (ri)1 straight rye whiskey
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Lillet Blond
2 dashes Regan’s Orange
Bitters No. 6

In an ice-filled mixing glass, add rye whiskey, Cherry Heering, Lillet, and orange bitters. Stir until very cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Finish with the essence of a burnt orange twist and discard. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
