Description

Japanese Roku Gin Cocktail with Orange Blossom Syrup is a perfect drink for the cozy holiday season. The botanical flavors from the highly fragrant gin make this drink refreshing and light. Great as a pre-dinner cocktail!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ounce Roku gin
  • 1 ounce Saint Germain
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 ounces orange blossom syrup
  • 4-5 cubes of ice
  • 1-3 ounces tonic water, as needed

Instructions

  1. Squeeze lime for fresh lime juice. Lemon juice will work too.
  2. Add Roku gin, St German, orange blossom syrup, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker.
  3. Add ice to the shaker, then gently shake until it's cold to the touch. 
  4. Pour into a cocktail glass.
  5. Add tonic water and garnish with your favorite herbs and spices! That's it! Enjoy. 

Notes

  • Use cocktail sugar for a more celebratory feel. Mix the colors of the sugar to match the theme of your party or season.
  • Infuse your Roku with other dried herbs like chrysanthemum, dried rose petals, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, or any of your favorite herbs. Mix an herb with the Roku in a glass jar for 24-48 hours before use. 
  • Making your kaffir lime syrup will elevate this cocktail to another level! Simple mix sugar with kaffir lime leaves at a 1-1 ratio until the sugar dissolve. Let cool before use. 
  • Adds aromatic bitters for a stronger herbaceous taste. Use only a little bit. A few drops go a long way.
