Gordon’s Cup Cocktail with Kaffir Lime & Lemongrass Gin

Gordans Cup

Gordon's Cup Cocktail (a.k.a Twisting Cup)

 I had to make this cocktail as my Grandpa was called Gordon and he loved a G&T. He was old school of course, always in a suit and tie and would not approve of anything other than a traditional Gin and Tonic, made with huge amounts of Gordons gin and a dash of tonic! Our Twisting Cup take on this original cocktail really is about the flavour of our gin coming through to add an extra something to the fresh, savoury taste the drink already has! We recommend this one with our Twisting Spirits Kaffir Lime and Lemongrass Gin, the citrus tone really hit the right note with in the concoction! However our special edition Summer Snaps gin would also be delicious! 

Gordon’s Cup Cocktail is a savoury, cooling drink. Perfect on a hot summers day. It’s Slightly related to the “Caipirinha” , Gordon’s Cup was created in the mid-2000s by one of the pioneers of the cocktail resurgence, Sasha Petraske. We like to call our rendition Twisting Cup because the unique taste of our gin really twists the flavours of this drink.
