Celebrate the new year with the Magic Flute, a festive cocktail inspired by rebirth.
1 oz St George Terroir Gin
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Lemon
1/2 oz Honey Ginger Syrup*
*For the Honey Ginger Syrup:
2 Parts Honey
1 Part Hot Water
Making the Honey Ginger Syrup:
Stir until dissolved, add some sliced fresh ginger and refrigerate to cool overnight, strain out the ginger and store in the fridge. This syrup is also amazing in tea, or as a sweetener for an Old Fashioned.
Add all ingredients in shaker, shake briefly over ice and strain into two Champagne flutes or favorite glassware, top with a little Champagne or Prosecco.
Garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy!
If you want to build more for a bigger party, multiply the recipe and chill the batch in the refrigerator ahead of time, and simply combine with the Champagne or Prosecco to order.
