Cocktail Cabinet of the Apocalypse #2: Cherry Bitch with a Chainsaw

This drink gets its name from the brand of gin traditionally used: Bulldog. However, in a pinch, any gin will do… even bathtub!

The lime and cherries work well together to give you a vitamin C boost that tastes great. You’ll need to find yourself a measure that also uses “weights” for this one.
Ingredients (serves 1):
6oz gin
1 bag blackcurrant tea
3 – 5 fresh cherries
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
3 – 4 oz apple juice
1oz simple sugar syrup
orange peel twist to serve
Muddle your cherries. It can be tricky to muddle ingredients in a traditional cocktail glass, so instead use a tumbler or an Old Fashioned glass, and transfer the fruit when done.
In another glass, infuse the gin with the blackcurrant teabag. After removing the bag, pour into the cocktail glass.
Add the lime juice, syrup and apple juice to the glass, then transfer the mix to a chilled cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake well, then strain into the glass. Garnish with the orange twist and serve.
