This week our Raise A Glass series has some yummy Bombay Sapphire cocktail recipes…


Gin and Tonic is one of the most popular drinks of the British summer. In fact, we would go as far as to say that no summer is complete without a G&T toast!

Among our favourite gins – and let’s face it there are plenty to choose from nowadays – is Bombay Sapphire. We don’t just love the blue bottle, but we also love what is inside! It is no wonder that this gin is one of the best-selling in the world and for those who like to mix things up a bit, here are some cocktail ideas for your Bombay Sapphire tipple…

Bombay Sapphire


We are loving the Pear and Ginger Seasonal Twist recipe. A sensational gin twist, in more ways than one. There’s the sweet citrus notes from the pear juice and warming aromatic ginger garnish, all served invitingly ice cold.

Ingredients

  •  50 ml Bombay Sapphire
  •  30 ml Pear juice
  •  2 Fresh lime wedges
  •  50 ml Premium tonic water
  •  1 Sliver of ginger
  •  1 Sage leaf

Method

  1. Fill balloon glass to rim with good ice
  2. Stir until frosted then strain excess liquid from glass
  3. Add Bombay Sapphire, pear juice and a squeeze of fresh lime
  4. Add new lime wedge garnish under the ice
  5. Stir drink to acclimate contents
  6. Tilt glass and pour chilled tonic water down side of glass and lift once gently using bar spoon
  7. Garnish with sliver of ginger and sage leaf

Next up is the Bombay Sapphire Mint and Ginger Twist recipe. It’s a classic G&T with a twist, bringing all the bold flavour of Bombay Sapphire and ginger together, finished with fresh mint.

Ingredients

  •  50 ml Bombay Sapphire
  •  1 Sliver of ginger
  •  1 Mint Sprig
  •  100 ml Premium tonic water
