Summer in a Glass - The Royal Blush

Served for the first time at Royal Ascot last year, The Royal Blush is a beautiful pink concoction, combining Beefeater London dry gin with zingy rhubarb syrup, chilled lemonade and fresh raspberries.

This signature cocktail is available throughout the Flat season at Ascot Racecourse, which runs from now until October, but would be perfect for any summer festivities you might have planned. No butler required.

Ingredients:

Beefeater London Dry Gin

Funkin Rhubarb syrup

Schweppes lemonade

2 half circles of lemon

2 Raspberries

Cubed ice

Method:

Place a clean polished 16oz glass on a flat surface. Use tongs to put cubed ice in the glass a third of the way full. Once this is done place one half circle of lemon and one raspberry in the glass. Next fill the 50ml spirit measure with Beefeater Gin and pour into the glass.

Using a bottle opener, open a 200ml bottle of Schweppes lemonade and pour into the glass. Use a 25ml spirit measurer as a guide to measure 12.5ml-15ml of syrup and pour in the glass. Add the remaining raspberry and half slice of lemon to the glass for garnish. Then place a black straw and stirrer into the glass. Then present to the customer or enjoy!
