    Like all safe alcoholic drinks, gin is based on ethanol, an intoxicating liquid chemical that…

  • 100ml sweet red vermouth
  • 20ml dark rum

Method

  1. To make a mincemeat syrup, put 100ml water, the golden caster sugar and mincemeat in a pan and bring to the boil. Cool and strain though muslin into a sieve. Separately, mix the caster sugar and mixed spice, then dampen the rims of 4 Martini glasses and dip in the sugar and spice mixture.

  2. Muddle the mincemeat in a cocktail shaker (you may need to make in 2 batches), then add the gin, sweet red vermouth, dark rum, 80ml mincemeat syrup and ice. Shake well and strain into your prepared glass.

Plus, Martini Rosso will work better than Dubonnet if you have any in the cupboard.

I agree, it is a poorly worded recipe. Having made a fair few cocktails in my time I know you should never reuse ingredients, so they mean use the 100g caster sugar and the 50g mincemeat to make the syrup, then use the 4tsp mincemeat to muddle in the shaker with the other ingredients (mash up with a muddler or pestle). This will just give it a more intense mince pie flavour. Then strain it so there are no bits in the glass. I'm just off to make the syrup to give this a try tonight!

I agree the recipe is somewhat confusing spindizzy. I think it means the mincemeat left in the sieve, as mincemeat syrup is added too. I don't think I'll be wasting money buying a bottle of Dubonnet for it though!

"Muddle the mincemeat in a cocktail shaker" Do you mean mincemeat syrup? The recipe has already used the mincemeat.
