Ingredients

  • 50g white caster sugar
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp celery seeds
  • juice 3 limes
  • 200ml gin
  • handful of ice
  • 4 wedges of baby fennel

Method

  • STEP 1

    Start by making a syrup: put the white caster sugar in a medium-sized saucepan along with 50ml water, the fennel seeds and the celery seeds. Stir and cook gently over a really low heat until all the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, allow to cool for 10 mins, then add the lime juice.

  • STEP 2

    Strain the fennel and lime syrup through a fine sieve into a cocktail shaker, add the gin and a handful of ice, then shake to combine. Once the outside of the cocktail shaker feels cold, strain the mixture into 4 Martini glasses. Add a wedge of baby fennel to each glass, then serve.
