Our collaborator Pepe Orts prepares the Buttermint Toffee cocktail. This cocktail combines the butter and sugar flavors that the Schnapps Butterscotch gives us, with the freshness of Level Gin Reserve and the acidity of the lemon juice, seasoned with the aroma of fresh mint. The result is sweet, aromatic, with a butter flavour, but without being cloying. Gin and lemon give the necessary balance to a mid-afternoon cocktail, perfect for spring / summer.
1cl sugar syrup
1,5cl natural lemon juice
2cl Butterscotch schnapps
4cl Level Gin Reserve
top of Ginger Ale
Shake all ingredients together (with crushed ice) except the Ginger Ale and shake until chilled. Pour the contents into a Mason jar into which we have previously added a slice of lemon to, and add more ice until the glass is covered. Top with ginger ale and garnish with a sprig of mint.
Before serving, flame the toffee caramel. By burning the sugar of the toffee caramel, it will produce an exquisite aroma of melted butter with caramelized sugar.
