Jaisalmer Indian Gin & Tonic 

50ml Jaisalmer Gin 

125ml Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water 

Orange Peel 


Fill a Copa glass with ice.
Add Jaisalmer Gin and top up with Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water.
Add an orange peel twist. 

Top Tip

Why not save the orange peel each time you boost your Vitamin C levels by eating an orange. Simply freeze orange peel on a tray until it is frozen then transfer to a Tupperware and keep in the freezer. 

Jaisalmer Golden Fort 

50ml Jaisalmer Gin 

15ml Lime Juice 

10ml Cinnamon Syrup (see recipe below) 

50ml Cloudy Apple Juice 

Sliced Green Apple 

Nutmeg (optional)


Pour Jaisalmer Gin over cubed ice.

Add fresh lime juice, cinnamon syrup and cloudy apple juice.

Garnish with an apple fan of 3 slices and add grated nutmeg on top (optional). 

Cinnamon Syrup Recipe 

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup water

4 cinnamon sticks, broken into large pieces

Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 8-10 minutes until sugar has dissolved, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool. Discard cinnamon sticks, strain into a clean glass jar and cover. Store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Top Tip

If you have some apples that you need to preserve, why not thinly slice them into semi-circles and freeze them to use at a later date as a cocktail garnish. Make sure to place the apple slices so they aren’t touching on a tray to freeze so that they don’t stick together. Once they are frozen, you can put them all together in a Tupperware and store in the freezer. 

Jaisalmer Maharaja Mojito 

50ml Jaisalmer Gin 

20ml Sugar Syrup (see recipe below)

15ml Lime Juice 

6 Mint Leaves 

50ml Bitter Lemon Mixer


Fill up glass with ice, pour Jaisalmer Gin.
Clap 6 mint leaves and add to the glass.
Add fresh lime juice, bitter lemon mixer and sugar syrup. Stir gently and garnish with a mint sprig. 

Sugar Syrup Recipe 

300g caster sugar 

150ml water 

Dissolve 300g caster sugar in 150ml water over a low heat. Leave to cool and bottle for use in cocktails. Store in the fridge.

Top Tip 

If you have an abundance of mint in your kitchen, why not rinse some mint leaves and freeze them in water in ice cube trays for use in future cocktails?
