This Quinine Bikini Martini cocktail is a pleasant partner after a long and warm day at the beach. The refreshing notes from the passion fruit and lemon juice blends perfectly with the bittersweet notes from our Distilled Comeback Quinine. The gin itself has delicate bittersweet notes that unfold alongside floral and citrusy aromas on top of the mild wheat distillate.
2 cl sugar syrup (equal parts hot water and sugar mixed)
2 ½ - 3 passionfruits (½ for garnish)
3 cl freshly squeezed lemon juice
1. Pour all the ingredients into a shaker and shake.
2. Double-strain into a chilled coupe glass.
3. Garnish with a halved passionfruit.
This gin is based on revisited botanicals from our handcrafted cinchona bark based tonic syrup. They make a bittersweet comeback when they are reused and distilled together with a few other carefully selected botanicals. The result is delicate bittersweet notes that unfold alongside floral and citrusy aromas on top of the mild wheat distillate. It also comes in a Njord Ligalab edition where the gin is diluted with the house-made tonic syrup it is based upon.
