Cocktail Series: Shetland Reel
Originally developed in the late 19th century, a Tom Collins has been enjoyed for many years. Traditionally this refreshing cocktail was made using Old Tom Gin which has a sweeter taste that balanced out the sharp acidic lemon flavours.
Shetland Reel have created their own twist on this traditional drink; a Tomas Collinson, made using their very own Up Helly Aa edition gin. The sweet sherry notes from the cask aged Up Helly Aa gin give a sherberty note that compliments the citrus notes from grapefruit.
What you'll need:
35ml Shetland Reel Up Helly Aa Edition Gin
15ml Grapefruit Juice
10ml Simple Syrup
Combine gin, juice, and syrup in a highball glass and fill with ice. Top up with soda and give it a peerie stir to combine – garnish with a grapefruit slice.
