7 Easy Ableforth’s Cocktails


Simple and delicious recipes to sip and savour


Dry January is over! Which means one thing. Well, seven things actually. Now that sipping a tipple is strictly A-OK again for those of you who abstained last month (definitely not us by the way), it’s time to focus on what’s important...namely, delicious cocktails!

We’ve compiled a list of super simple but bloody tasty serves, each with a different spirit from our accomplished range. So what are you waiting for? Grab your garnishes and get drinking! (Responsibly of course, especially if you haven’t drunk for 3,000 years - the approximate length of January…)


25ml Bathtub Gin
25ml sweet vermouth
25ml Campari

Stir over ice and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass, garnish with orange zest.

Also, FYI over at Master of Malt there’s an absolutely cracking Negroni bundle offer where you can get everything you need to create this delicious cocktail. Well, minus the orange zest because let’s be honest, it doesn’t fare well in the post...
