RECIPE TIPS
HOW TO MAKE SUGAR SYRUP

To make sugar syrup put 200g white caster sugar into a saucepan with 100ml water. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved and it starts to simmer then turn off the heat and allow to cool before using. Store in a sterilised bottle for up to 1 week.

FOR A HEADY FROTH

For added flair put the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in the cocktail shaker, but instead of adding the ice, put in 1 egg white. Shake really well to froth the mixture, then add ice and shake again. Double strain before adding the sparkling water.
